Chennai: Thirty-two kg of gold biscuits, worth Rs 15 crore in the international market, were Monday recovered from the lavatory of an Air India flight and four persons arrested in this connection, airport sources said.

Based on a tip-off, Directorate of Revenue Intelligence officials took into custody for questioning Abdul Gaffoor Nasroon and Mohammad Zainul Hussain -- both natives of Kerala, who arrived here by a flight from Dubai around 5.30 AM.
Investigations revealed that they had hidden the gold biscuits in the lavatory of the plane, in which they travelled from Dubai and two accomplices-- Mohammad Yousuf Abdul and Mohammad Yasin Abdul Hussain-- who were waiting to board the same flight on its second leg to Delhi, supposed to pick them up.

The two waiting with boarding passes to board the flight, scheduled to depart at 6.40 AM, were also arrested, they said.
