Foreign Currency Worth Rs 1.61 Cr Seized At Delhi Airport

CISF (Central Industrial Security Force) detected a high volume of foreign currency worth rupees 1.75 crore at IGI Airport, New Delhi.  CISF surveillance and intelligence staff of IGI Airport zeroed-in on a lady of a foreign national while entering Terminal-3.

On suspicion, the said lady later identified as Maryam Garba, Passport number A06911179 (Nigerian national), bound for Dubai by flight number 6E-023 (STD-0720 hrs) was taken to the random checking point for screening of her baggage.

On screening of her bags through X-BIS machine, some bundles of currency notes were noticed inside her bag. The said lady was allowed to go for check-in and was kept under a close watch through electronic as well as physical surveillance.

After the check-in process, Marayam cleared Pre-Embarkation Security Check (PESC) without making any declaration to Customs regarding carrying high volume of currency notes.

Immediately after clearing PESC in SHA, she was intercepted by CISF and the matter was passed to AIU/Customs Officials. Her checked-in baggage, which was held by the concerned airline on the request of CISF, was brought to Customs Office for physical check.

On physical search of her check-in baggage, USD-2,23,600, Singaporean Dollars-5,500 and Swiss Franc-6,520 worth approximately INR 1.61 crores were recovered.

Later on, she with the recovered high volume of foreign currency was handed over to Customs Officials for further legal action in the matter.
