Customs officials recovered gold worth an estimated Tk 1.15 crore from a Biman Bangladesh Airlines plane at Sylhet Osmani International Airport on Tuesday.

Flight BG-248 came from Dubai around 9am, said Ahsan Ullah, deputy commissioner of customs.

A team of customs raided the aircraft as part of their regular drive and recovered 20 gold bars weighing 3.320kg wrapped in scotch-tap and hidden beneath a seat, said the official.

No-one was arrested in this connection.
