A man travelling from Dubai to India has been arrested after being caught with 407 grams of 24-carat gold up his rectum.

The man arrived at Chandigarh airport, in northern India, on Tuesday morning and was apprehended as he left after customs officers received a tip-off about his smuggling attempt, according to reports in India.

At first he denied that he had any gold in his body but police say he finally confessed and was taken to the washroom to remove the items.

The Indian man, who was said to be acting as a courier for an international gang of smugglers, now faces jail time when he is prosecuted.
