Man Trying to Fly with $40,000 Concealed in Pan Masala Packets Caught at Kolkata Airport; Video Goes Viral

At the Kolkata airport on Sunday, customs officers discovered thousands of sealed "pan masala" pouches filled with cash worth $40,000, or more than 32 lakh. Several neatly folded $10 bills and what appeared to be pan masala powder were visible in a video of a customs official tearing open the sachets. The sachets were also packed tightly inside a sizable trolley bag.

The passenger, who was supposed to fly to Bangkok, was detained by the Kolkata Customs Department after they received information from Air Intelligence Unit (AIU) officers. "AIU agents from Kolkata Customs yesterday detained a traveller headed for Bangkok. A search of his checked-in baggage resulted in the recovery of US $40000 (worth over ₹32 lakh) concealed inside Gutkha pouches”, the Kolkata Customs Department tweeted."
