An Indian man who hid a kilogram of gold inside his body was arrested

In a strange incident, the police arrested an Indian man who had stashed about a kilogram of gold inside his body.

The details came as an Indian man was arrested at a local airport in India while trying to smuggle a kilogram of gold paste he was hiding inside his vital organs, according to the authorities.

And according to what was published by "Sky News Arabia", the smuggler was arrested while he was intending to go to New Delhi, when a security officer at Imphal Airport in North Manipur discovered "the presence of metal in the body cavity."

The authorities subjected him to X-rays and discovered 4 capsules in his rectum containing a total of more than 900 grams of gold paste, valued at about 56,664 dollars, according to a statement by the Indian security authorities.

It is worth noting that the demand for gold has reached its peak in recent months in India, due to the season of weddings and preparations for the most prominent Hindu festivals that are held in late autumn each year.
