12kg of gold found stashed in Abu Dhabi plane’s toilet


DUBAI – Passengers of a flight from Abu Dhabi had no idea that the plane was carrying a secret, special cargo. How special? More than 100 gold bars hidden in the toilet.

Bangladeshi intelligence and customs officials found the hidden stash in the toilet of Biman flight BG 128 on Monday after the plane landed at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in Dhakra.

The gold bars, weighing a total of 12kg, were hidden behind a mirror in the lavatory.

“Members of the intelligence agency seized 106 pieces of gold bars weighing around 12 kilograms, from a toilet of Biman Bangladesh Airlines (BG-128) in an abandoned condition on Monday morning,” said Othelo Chowdhury, deputy commissioner of Dhaka Customs House.
