A picture going viral on social media platforms has baffled the Internet. Shared by ANI on July 22, it shows a brown coloured paste that has been identified as gold paste.
According to ANI, 1.850 kilograms of gold paste was seized at the Hyderabad International airport on July 21.
However, it is the appearance of the paste that has everyone scratching their heads. Unlike the sparkling golden one would expect, the paste looks rather like... poop.
The picture of the gold paste was doing rounds on social media. People were disgusted yet surprised by how gold looked in the form of a paste.
Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) of India said, the gold worth Rs 34.5 lakh suspected to have been smuggled from Colombo.
The passenger was carrying two packages in his hand luggage containing paste weighing 1850 grams, which had 1,120 grams of gold content.
