Customs officials in India have fined a priest working in a parish in Switzerland for hiding three gold ingots disguised as chocolate bars in his baggage, Indian media reported.
The 59-year-old Catholic priest travelled to India on Monday and was stopped going through the ‘nothing to declare’ customs line after landing at Cochin International Airport in Kochi, Kerala, reported The Hindu.
Suspicious of his behaviour, customs officials searched his bags and found three 100-gram gold ingots wrapped up to look like chocolate.
