Bringing the reference of Charles Sobhraj’s sarcastic remark—that he (Sobhraj) could pass an elephant through customs of Nepal’s airport security– upon Tribhuvan International Airport’s security system he commented, “An elephant of gold has passed through airport security. What is the government waiting for?
