On grilling the Nigerian revealed that more contraband was concealed inside her body and she was unable to take out the same on her own.
“We took her to a nearby super speciality hospital where X-ray examination of her lower abdomen showed some concealment in her uterus and the same can be detected only through trans-vaginal USG,” he said.
The woman was admitted to a hospital for further medical examination, the officer said adding that a probe into the matter had been initiated.
