Guwahati: In a bizarre incident at the Imphal Airport on Monday, the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) recovered four packets of gold paste weighing 909.68 gm, a statement issued by the paramilitary force said. The gold has been valued at approximately ₹ 42 lakh.

A CISF sub-inspector reportedly noticed presence of a metal in passenger Mohammed Shereef’s rectal cavity. When asked about the metal, authorities said he did not come up with a ‘satisfactory’ answer.

Shereef was then taken to the medical exam room for an X-Ray of his lower body and the reports showed that he had concealed metallic items (gold paste) in his body. The man eventually confessed, after which senior CISF officials and the customs department were alerted.

A resident of Kozhikode in Kerala, Shereef was to fly from Imphal to Delhi on an Air India flight at 2:40pm on Monday, but remains in custody for further action.
