Smuggling is neither new nor an unusual thing happening in India, though it certainly is illegal. What is new about the illegal act is the ingenious ways adopted by the smugglers these days to slip precious things in and out of the country. But the form of smuggling that custom officials discovered is nothing ordinary. As per the media reports, The Directorate of Revenue Intelligence recovered 1.850 kg of gold paste at the Hyderabad International Airport on July 22.

When the authorities extracted gold out of the paste after heating it with kerosene, a whopping 1120.780 grams of gold came out.
