Gold biscuits worth Rs 57 lakh seized from two Rameswaram fishermen

MADURAI: Customs officials seized 2.3 kilogram of gold from two fishermen in Rameswaram on Sunday.

The officials raided the homes of Murugavel and Danistan in Dhanushkodi and seized gold biscuits worth Rs 57 lakh.

Smuggling of gold through the sea route has been on the rise in the recent times and customs and the Q branch of the Tamil Nadu police have intensified patrolling along the coast.

Fishermen in the region receive gold being smuggled from Sri Lanka and hand it over to the smugglers in the country.
