This seems like a painful way to avoid taxes.
A man was arrested at Kannur Airport in Kerala, India, last week after airport officials found more than £ 2 (972 grams) of flat gold hidden in his rectum, according to recent reports.
Air Intelligence Unit (AIU) officials at the airport removed the gold from where it was hidden, according to a tweet from the agency on Tuesday.
The man flew to Kerala from Dubai on a GoAir flight, reported The National.

According to the news service, there is an 18% gold tax in India. The 972 grams of gold that the man tried to bring to the country cost about $ 60,000, according to the New York Post.

However, that is not the only gold smuggled in flying from Dubai. According to another tweet, AIU officials also found more than 3 pounds (1,470 grams) of gold in another passenger.
Officials did not explain where the other smuggled gold was hidden.

According to The National, a third person was caught trying to bring gold to India illegally on Wednesday – this time in their underwear.
That passenger – who flew to Kozhikode, or Calicut, from Sharjah to the United Arab Emirates – was found with less than a thousand gold, the website reported.
