New Delhi, Two Taiwanese nationals were recently arrested in India on suspicion of gold smuggling when law enforcement officers waited for them to pick up parcels that had gold inside, according to sources.
Customs officials on Nov. 22 detected 86 wrapped parcels that contained nine kilograms of gold worth $33 million rupees (US$468,000), and then informed the person to whom the parcels were addressed that the items had arrived, without revealing what had been found.
The two Taiwanese were sent by GWS Suppliers, the addressee, to collect the parcels and were arrested when they turned up at Customs, sources said, adding that two Chinese nationals and two Indians were also arrested in the same case.
According to unofficial estimates, there have been at least 22 Taiwanese people arrested for allegedly trying to smuggle gold into India this year.
