Cleaners have found a stash of 24 gold bars worth more than $1.1 million hidden in an airplane lavatory.

The bars were left after a flight from Bangkok arrived in eastern India.

The Jet Airways plane had landed in Kolkata and was being cleaned before a scheduled flight to Patna when the cleaners found two bags with the gold stashed inside.

The gold bars weighed around 1 kilogram each. Customs officials confiscated the stash and are investigating.

India is one of the world’s biggest consumers of gold.

  5. How do you know that is real!! And who would want to take gold on a plane because it would get taken away by coustoms!! Plus you would go by crusie if you had gold because they don’t have coustoms. But I think you would be a bit silly to take gold bars on a plane.
