Four gold bars worth ₹30 lakh were recovered from a washroom inside the Delhi airport, a CISF official said on Monday.

CISF PRO Hemendra Singh said at 6 a.m., they received information that a packet was lying inside a dustbin of a washroom located at deboarding gate area of Terminal-3 of Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport.

“CISF personnel rushed to the spot and bomb disposal team of CISF and other senior officers were informed. The packet was verified by the bomb disposal team to rule out any dangerous item inside it,” said Mr. Singh.

On opening the packet, four gold bars weighing about 1 kg, was found concealed inside a cigarette packet. The bars were then handed over to the customs authorities for further legal action, said the CISF officer.

He said the gold bars must be brought by some passenger but sensing trouble at the hands of security and the customs, the person abandoned it and escaped.
