ITBP strikes gold with largest ever 108 kg seizure in Ladakh

The Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) arrested two men near the China border in Eastern Ladakh on July 9 for smuggling 108 kg of gold biscuits from China. This is the first time such a huge gold smuggling racket was caught, said ITBP officials, adding that two locals were arrested and one person has been detained.

A team headed by Deputy Commandant Deepak Bhatt intercepted two persons with mules within one kilometre of China border. “On being stopped, the suspects tried to run away but the patrol party chased them and reached the area where they had pitched tents. Initially, the suspects said they were collecting medicinal plants but later patrol party found a huge quantity of gold and other items,” said Clay Khongsai, Inspector General, ITBP. He added that this was the largest haul of gold ever by ITBP.

The suspects were identified as Tsering Chamba (69) and Tenzin Targy (40), residents of Hanle. ITBP recovered a binocular, Chinese food items such as cake, milk, knives, mobile phones, and two ponies other than 108 pieces of gold biscuits weighing 1 kg each with “Gulf Gold Refinery” embossed on them from the suspects.

The accused were intercepted by an ITBP team that was out on a Long Range Patrolling in the border areas in the Southern Sub Sector (SSS) in Eastern Ladakh to check infiltration and smuggling amid specific inputs of smuggling in the area near Sirigaple, Ladakh. Joint interrogation of the suspects will be carried out by the Police, Intelligence Bureau, Customs, and ITBP. The seizure along with the suspects have been handed over to Customs Department officers for further questioning and needful action as enshrined in the law.
