A Gurgaon resident, suspected to be a facilitator of north-east insurgent groups, was held with Rs 1.26 crore on Saturday.
P Baruah from Guwahati was nabbed on a tip-off from security agencies by income tax and revenue Intelligence officials. He has owned up the unaccounted cash, but has denied any links with N-E insurgent groups.
Government sources said on December 23, an input was received that N-E groups were moving unaccounted cash to Gurgaon. The matter was taken up by home secretary RK Singh, who alerted the DG DRI and DG IT Investigations.
