Chennai Customs recovers monkey, turtles, pythons and snakes from Bangkok passenger

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 13 Aug 2022, 11:40 pm

Chennai: A passenger from Bangkok was caught with live animals, including one De Brazza's monkey, 15 King snakes, five Ball pythons, and two Aldabra tortoises, by the customs officials in Chennai airport on August 11, according to media reports.

The officials said they intercepted him after they received intelligence input about a male passenger who was arriving from Bangkok with live animals on flight number TG-337.  

"Since the live animals were imported illegally, they were deported back to the country of origin through Thai airways in consultation with AQCS. Further investigation is on," the officials said.
