Gold is hugely popular in India, traditionally worn by brides, donated to Hindu temples as offerings, or given as part of dowries from all but the poorest families.

There's nothing more beautiful than a bride adorned in gold that was smuggled inside someones ass

"The smugglers were permitted to walk free as no individual was carrying enough to meet the criminal threshold."

If it's not criminal, why the hell are you allowed to take it from them, regardless of where it's concealed? Do Indian authorities regularly confiscate peoples gold rings, necklaces, and watches?

Not criminal doesn't mean legal. Just like in many jurisdictions, simple speeding is a regulatory infraction merely subject to a fine but if you go fast enough it triggers a criminal penalty and face court and potentially jail time. I wouldn't be surprised if these people deliberately put the amount of gold per person just under the threshold for criminal penalties.

These people were avoiding customs which start 10.3% on gold imports. Based on current gold prices, for 22 pounds of gold that is nearly $50,000.

As for your personal jewellery, you declare it upon leaving India and get a certificate allowing you to bring it back through customs when you return. If you bought it abroad, you declare it and pay customs duties or, yes, they will confiscate it.

Yes, and cash bribes.  They first start with serving chicken vindaloo to the suspect, put them in a holding cell, wait 2 hours, tada the gold shows up.
