Check-Post Officials Seize Gold Ornaments Worth Rs 38.50 Lakh in Dharwad

Dharwad, March 22: Tegur check-post officials, On Thursday, seized gold ornaments worth Rs. 38.50 lakh which were being transported without proper documentation in a state government bus.

According to a press release issued by the district election officials, Prakashkumar Hukamji Mali, a 47-year-old resident of Kolhapur, Maharashtra, was found carrying 778 grams of gold ornaments, including a necklace and locket, on KSRTC bus number KA-37-F-0748 (Nippani-Gangavati) while traveling from Kolhapur to Sindhanur.

During routine checkup, authorities found a discrepancy between the weight of the gold ornaments listed on the bills presented by Mali and the actual weight of the seized items. This significant difference raised suspicion that Mali might have been attempting to conceal information and transport the gold illegally.

Authorities will conduct the further enquiry and take necessary action.
