The female passenger is Kaur Gurcharan Singh Manpal, born on September 11th, 1971 with Malaysian nationality and entered Vietnam through Tan Son Nhat International Airport in Ho Chi Minh city on EK392 flight.

When checking her consigned luggage, officers suspected and asked her to bring the luggage to check manually and the customs officers discovered the total of 16 packages of white powder with a weight of 5.39kg hidden in her suitcase, handbag and book covers.

The quick test showed that the white powder is cocaine.

In addition, according to the Ho Chi Minh city Customs Department, the woman had a quite complex itinerary before arriving in Vietnam. She went from Malaysia through Colombia, Panama, Sao Paulo (Brazil) - Dubai (United Arab Emirates) and then to Vietnam.

The Ho Chi Minh city Customs Department handed over person and exhibits to the Ho Chi Minh city police for further investigation./.
