Sargunan M. Suppiah (37), a Malaysian national, has been arrested by Customs officials at Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport carrying 372 grams of heroin concealed in his underwear.
The drugs have a calculated street value of Rp. 855 million (US$87,200).
As reported by Kompas.com and Seputarbali.com, the head of the Airport’s Custom’s office, Made Widjaya, said his officials had been tipped off to Suppiah’s arrival and became increasingly suspicious when Suppiah was the last to disembark Air Asia AK1364 from Kuala Lumpur. A pattern of suspicious behavior and an inability to offer logical answers to questions led official to conduct a strip search, which yielded the drugs.
The man’s passport showed that the man has flow frequently between Kuala Lumpur and Bali over the past three months.
If charged under Section of 113 of the 2009 Anti-Narcotics law, Suppiah can be sentenced to 20 years in prison.
