Displaying the stones, Jangid said Rafi had a valid passport and was acting as a human courier and was paid only Rs 10,000 for the job. He had stored the precious stones in 42 condoms and had swallowed all of them. It took the police six hours to retrieve the stones after they fed him with laxatives and bananas.
Sri Lankan Mule Transports Diamonds and Wingman To Make A Cell Phone Call
CHENNAI: A Sri Lankan who had 2,060 pieces of diamonds and other precious stones lodged in his stomach was arrested from the Chennai airport by the central crime branch of the suburban police.
Addressing a press conference on Wednesday, Chennai suburban police commissioner S R Jangid said he received a call on Tuesday morning from a reliable informant that the man was travelling to Chennai on an Air India flight. “That was the only information available and no other clue, but we zeroed in on him as soon as he came out of the airport and tried to call and board a taxi,” he said.
Police were amazed to discover his idiot partner accompanying him to cell phone in the call they had arrived to drop off the diamonds.
