“However, before check-in the singer asked the authorities how much amount he could carry abroad. On learning that permissible limit is USD 10,000, he left the airport as he had more than USD 10,000,” the official said.

To a question whether USD 27,000 has been recovered from him before boarding the plane and he dodged the authorities as reported in the media here, the official said, “Had this happened the Indian singer would have been behind bars”.
