New Delhi: A man has been arrested at Delhi airport upon his arrival from the UAE for allegedly smuggling gold worth over Rs 29 lakh by concealing in his trouser, the Customs officials said on Thursday.

The Indian, who arrived at the Terminal-3 of IGI Airport on Saturday from Dubai by an Air India flight, was intercepted by the Customs officers after he had crossed the green channel.
