One of the former gang members of Suhani gang told ABI (Akela Bureau of Investigation) that all Suhani’s gang members are also involved in smuggling of Dollar and Euro. They smuggle gold from Dubai, Singapore and Bangkok and handover gold to Hawala businessmen in Zaveri Bazar and Kamathipura in Mumbai. They frequently use Hyderabad, Delhi, Bangalore, Ahmedabad airports to avoid action as security at these airports’ is allegedly worthless. Sources said Ahmedabad security officers are very corrupt.
In exchange of gold they take Dollar (in form of $100 note) and Euro (in form of 500 note). They make one role of 42 notes and insert two roles in rectum.
