Mumbai: Two Indian men were apprehended at the airport here for allegedly smuggling in gold bars, a Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) spokesperson said.

S R Krishna, who arrived here from Riyadh and was supposed to travel to Vishakhapatnam, was intercepted by CISF officials after they found an undeclared 300-gram gold bar in his baggage, he said.

Similarly, M Mohinuddin, who arrived here from Bahrain and was supposed to take a flight to Hyderabad, was intercepted by the CISF personnel and four gold bars, weighing a total of 435 grams, were seized from him, the spokesperson said.

Both men were handed over to the customs officials at the Mumbai airport as they had no documents to justify carrying the gold bars and it seemed to be a possible case of gold smuggling and duty evasion, he said.
