At least 16 kg gold biscuits hidden in baby diapers were recovered from the Indira Gandhi International Airport after a group of fliers coming from Dubai were intercepted by security agencies on 12 December.

Officials said the recovery was made around 7 am when a group of six passengers arrived here from Dubai and were intercepted for a thorough check.

"Gold biscuits weighing about 16 kg have been recovered from the passengers. The 16 gold biscuits, of one kg each, were found cleverly concealed in the diapers and towel of the two babies they were carrying. The two groups comprising a couple and a baby each are from Surat," the officials said.

The fliers are being interrogated by Customs officials, they added.
