CHENNAI: Doctors at the Rajiv Gandhi Government General Hospital (RGGGH) in Chennai are busy attending to two passengers who landed in city on Sunday night on a Malaysia Airlines flight, after customs officials at the airport found them carrying gold in their rectum.

As their suspicion was confirmed by a scan at the airport, the officials first waited a few hours for the duo - Kamludeen and Hussain from Ramnad - to defecate. However, as their wait turned futile after long hours, the two were shifted to the RGGGH for ‘extraction’ of a more forceful nature.

After examination, doctors have kept them in the surgical examination ward and have decided to wait and watch instead of using an endoscope to do the work.

On Tuesday, one of the men excreted the gold that he had swallowed, which was collected and given to the investigating officials. RGGGH doctors have decided to wait till the other man follows suit and are not planning to given him an enema, to hasten matters along, any time soon. Nature they believe, will take it’s course.
