Indian budget carrier IndiGo reveals golden package
(02-13 19:04)

An Indian airliner made an emergency landing in Malaysia today over a bomb scare, but fear turned to suspicion once authorities found three gold bars.
The pilot of the IndiGo budget airline flight from Singapore to Chennai in India diverted to Malaysia early today after a crew member found a package in the toilet.
A Malaysian fire and rescue team that inspected the package at Kuala Lumpur International Airport found it contained three bars weighing less than 1 kilogram combined.
They were believed to be gold but authorities did not confirm that.
The carrier later resumed its flight to India. The case is being investigated. --AFP
