They said the passengers, bound for Kabul, had allegedly hidden USD 49,860 and over Rs 1 lakh in books and slippers kept in their baggage.  The total foreign currency is worth over Rs 35 lakh, they said.

The four persons, identified as Abdul Salam Ghiasi, Ruhullah Amin, Mohammad Baqir Hassan and Aminullah Rohani, were intercepted on Friday at the Indira Gandhi International Airport.
