Patna: Police in Patna, during a routine vehicle check at Dak Bungalow crossing on Thursday, recovered Rs. 50 lakh in cash from the possession of two men.
According to the police report, when the police opened a large black bag from the car of the two men, they found several bundles of cash neatly bundled in packs of Rs. 2000 for a total of Rs. 50 lakh.
The men, who were identified as Ajit Kumar and Pawan Kumar were taken to the nearby Kotwali police station where they were being grilled about the large amount of cash found in their vehicle.
The two, however, denied any illegality saying they were the employees of private bank RBL and were carrying the money from Patna to the bank's branch in Gopalganj.
Both Ajit and Pawan said that it was not uncommon for the bank to carry large amount of cash in inconspicuous cars to avoid being identified by criminals.
Authorities have informed the income tax department and are also verifying the story of Ajit and Pawan.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
