Visakhapatnam airport has become a hub for gold smugglers. As officials have tightened security in Hyderabad and Chennai airports, gold smugglers have taken the Vizag route. In the last year, officials seized nearly Rs. 4 crore worth of gold that was being smuggled through Vizag. There is only one flight to and from Dubai. Earlier, they smuggled gold through boats from Bangladesh and Sri Lanka and now they have shifted to flights.
