After landing, she was searched as part of a random check of passengers arriving from abroad for prohibited substances. It is known that the day before, Phuket airport security officials received information about the possible arrival of suspected drug smugglers in the region, so a search was conducted for passengers with suspicious behavior.

At the moment, Rakmonova is charged with importing into Thailand drugs of the second category (cocaine).
