You can fault smugglers for many things but not for lack of creativity. The latest example is Malappuram native Noushad who shaved his hair at the center of the scalp to make his wig look authentic.
A Malappuram native named Noushad got arrested by the customs department at Cochin International Airport while trying to smuggle 1kg gold under his wig. Noushad shaved his hair at the center of the scalp and hid gold using his wig. The gold concealed in compound form (paste) and fixed in such a way that it hid inside the wig that Noushad wearing. Later it will be retrieved by some methods through some procedures. In that way, the Gold will be undetected by metal detectors.
