Indian customs seized 1.5kg of gold dust from a Sri Lankan national who arrived in Chennai from Colombo yesterday.

Sources said R Thiagarajan smuggled gold dust in tea packets after mixing it with tea powder.

A customs official said the seizure was made based on a tip-off that gold was being smuggled from Colombo.

Officials monitored passengers arriving from an Air India Express flight and stopped Thiagarajan on suspicion.
