The gold was recovered Wednesday night from an apple-laden truck from Afghanistan by the officials at the Indo-Pak border.
During the checking, the officials found a cavity was created in the apple boxes to conceal the consignment of gold bars being smuggled to India, said Joint commissioner, Customs Arvind Kumar.
Commissioner Customs Dipak Kumar said, "One carton of apples concealed two gold bars weighing around 1.2 kg each wrapped in black rubber and black carbon paper at its base. Upon examination of the cargo, 11 cartons were found containing 27 gold bars weighting 32.654 kg."
According to the officials, it is the first time after 1991 that such a big gold consignment was seized at Attari border.
