NEW DELHI — Cleaners found a stash of 24 gold bars worth more than $1.1 million hidden in an airplane lavatory after a flight from Bangkok arrived in eastern India, officials said today.

The Jet Airways plane had landed in Kolkata and was being cleaned before a scheduled flight to Patna when the cleaners found two bags with the gold stashed inside, a customs official said. The gold bars weighed around 1 kilogram each. Customs officials confiscated the stash and are investigating.
