A woman from Mumbra was arrested at the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport on Friday night allegedly for trying to smuggle $76,000 to Dubai. The Air Intelligence Unit of the Mumbai Airport Customs held 44-year-old Reshmabano Memon at the boarding gate of her flight to Dubai after receiving information that she was involved in smuggling.
Customs officials who checked Memon’s hand and checked-in baggage found that foreign currency notes were stuffed in pockets of trousers packed in her suitcase as well as a purse in her hand baggage.
A Customs officer said that Memon, who is a housewife, last flew to Dubai in 2015, and that she was being investigated for smuggling foreign currency out of India on her previous trips abroad.
