He was carrying 156 gold biscuits and had already cleared customs.

In what has left many puzzled, Abdalla Ali, 29, had tucked the 156 gold “biscuits”worth Ksh.100 million in a waist belt and knee-cap supports.

The Times of India reported that Mr. Ali was apprehended after checking into a five-star hotel near the international airport.

According to the Indian daily newspaper, this was the biggest haul of smuggled goods that had ever been seized from an airline staff in the City of Mumbai.

Also arrested alongside Ali was 26-year-old Ibrahim Ali Hussein, a Kenyan who was allegedly supposed to collect the gold from the crew member.

The suspect is reported to have arrived in India at around 4pm aboard a Flight KQ210 and after clearance by the customs authority he proceeded to the hotel, where he was nabbed.

After landing in the city on Kenya Airways Flight KQ 210 at around 4pm, Said, cleared customs and was picked up by a car from Hyatt Regency.

However, a hotel employee grew suspicious as another foreign national kept walking close to him on the premises, said the police.
