    Breaking News: Afghan Diplomats Caught Smuggling 25kg Gold At Mumbai Airport

    In a startling revelation, the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) has detained Ms. Zakia Wardak, the Consul General of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, for allegedly attempting to smuggle a substantial quantity of gold into India. Authorities report that approximately 25 kilograms of gold, valued at around ₹18.6 crore, was seized as it was being illegally transported from Dubai to India.

    The DRI acted on specific intelligence, intercepting Ms. Wardak upon her arrival at the airport. The gold was discovered hidden among personal belongings in her luggage, leading to immediate detention and further investigation. The operation highlights the DRI’s vigilance in combating smuggling and maintaining national economic security.

    The implications of this incident are significant, given Ms. Wardak’s diplomatic status, potentially complicating the legal proceedings due to diplomatic immunity norms. The Ministry of External Affairs has been alerted and is coordinating with the Afghan Embassy to ensure that due process is followed while respecting international diplomatic laws.

    This high-profile case underscores ongoing concerns about the use of diplomatic channels for illegal activities, including smuggling. The DRI is expected to conduct a thorough investigation to uncover potential networks and collaborators involved in this scheme.

    Further details are awaited as the investigation progresses, with the DRI possibly holding a press conference to discuss the ramifications of this case and its impact on diplomatic relations between India and Afghanistan.
