Unclaimed gold weighing eight kg and valued at around Rs 2.80 crore was recovered from a New Delhi-bound flight in Chennai today, airport officials said.
The gold bullion worth about Rs 2.80 crore was found wrapped in a plastic bag and recovered from under a seat inside the aircraft by the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI), airport officials said.
DRI officials acted on specific input, they said, adding that a probe was on.
The flight, operated by a national carrier, had earlier arrived from Singapore.
