Jewellery still with customs, says Minissha Lamba

Mumbai: Though tight-lipped about the legal proceeding, actress Minissha Lamba, who was recently detained at Mumbai airport for carrying undeclared jewellery worth Rs.50 lakh, says the jewellery is still in the possession of the customs authorities.

"It`s still on. It`s not over, unfortunately. Everything is still with customs. It`s a legal matter, I am not supposed to speak about it," Minissha, 26, told reporters.

Lamba was intercepted by the customs officers May 18 while she was crossing the green channel at the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport in Mumbai. She was apparently returning after attending the Cannes Films Festival in France.

Reportedly in her statement to the customs department, the actress had said that the jewels belonged to Anmol Jewellers and she carried them to Cannes for promotional purposes.
