Chennai: Customs officials on Wednesday arrested a man at the airport here with a suitcase containing five venomous snakes.

Airport sources said the arrested Mohammed Azarudin, who arrived by a Thai Airways flight, told the Customs officials that one of his friends in Thaliand gave the suitcase to him with a request to handover it to a person in Chennai.

He said he was given Rs 10,000 for carrying the suitcase and was unaware of the contents in it.
