Transit traveller attempting to smuggle gold nabbed at HIA

The General Authority of Customs (GAC) has foiled an attempt to smuggle 84 pieces of gold, weighing a total of six kg, with a transit traveller at Hamad International Airport (HIA).

The traveller from another GCC country was spotted with some pieces of gold in his bag but he told the GAC officer that he is taking them to another country as transit.
