Doctor in a spot while trying to dispose of old currency notes for friend
A Delhi-based paediatrician fell in police net while allegedly trying to dispose of his friend’s money worth Rs 69,86000 and that too in Rs 100 rupees denomination.
When people are trying to dispose of or convert their old currency notes for new notes, an interesting case came to light in Delhi. On November 16, a call was received by the Central Delhi’s Paharganj police station that a Maruti Swift car carrying cash of around Rs 5 crore is moving towards Karol Bagh from Chuna Mandi.
The police team rushed into action and soon spotted the car in Karol Bagh. The police chased the car for 5 km before stopping it. On searching the car, the police were surprised to find three plastic bags filled with cash worth Rs 69 lakh 86 thousand. Even a bigger surprise waited when the team found the whole cash was in the denomination of Rs 100.
On interrogation, the child specialist Dr Dilip Nanal, who runs his clinic at Rajouri Garden, revealed that he got the money from one of his friend S P Sharma who runs a washing powder business at Paharganj.
“The cash and the car has been seized. Raid have been conducted at S P Sharma’s office but it was found locked and Sharma is absconding. We are trying to get the whereabouts of Sharma,” said DCP Central Mandeep Singh Randhawa.
Meanwhile, in another incident, Delhi Police Crime Branch conducted a raid at Sealdah-Delhi Rajdhani on Thursday and recovered Rs 5 lakh from the possession of one Mahadev Bhandari, a resident of West Bengal. The demonetised notes have been seized and the Income Tax department has been informed.
