He said Mohammed H Rehman of Assam was intercepted by the CISF security personnel at the Indira Gandhi International Airport and a search of his bags led to the recovery of 'agarwood', a wood used in making incense and perfume.

The wood is banned for export under the Wildlife Act, he said. Rehman was handed over to customs authorities along with 45 kg of the recovered wood that is estimated to be worth about Rs 2.25 crore.
