A customs official revealed that the woman was intercepted on the basis of suspicion. While searching her belongings and on person, it was found that the gold was concealed in the undergarments. The report stated that a "yellowish granular paste packed in two transparent polyethylene pouches and wrapped with black carbon tape" was found concealed in the woman's undergarments.

The gold was seized under the provisions of Customs Act 1962. From the gold paste, an official revealed that gold with 99.50 per cent purity and weighing 618.40 gram was extracted.
