A Delhi court on Tuesday sent a crew member of Jet Airways, who was arrested on Sunday night for allegedly carrying United States dollars worth Rs 3.21 crore, to judicial custody for two days, ANI reported.
The Directorate of Revenue Intelligence arrested the woman as she was travelling from Hong Kong. The airline said it would take action against its employee based on the investigation and inputs from law enforcement agencies, IANS reported.
The crew member had wrapped the undeclared cash in aluminium foil and kept it in her check-in baggage. “The woman and the alleged supplier of cash were intercepted inside the flight,” The Hindu quoted an unidentified official as saying. The police on Monday raided the home of the alleged cash supplier in Delhi’s Vivek Vihar locality.
The police are trying to find out whether the woman, who joined Jet Airways three months ago, had done this in the past, the daily quoted an unidentified officer as saying.
