A sum of Rs 1.34 crore, being taken to Kerala illegally, was seized from two people travelling in a bus at the Coimbatore bus-stand on Thursday.

The seizure was made during intensified vehicle checks by the election department and police officials to prevent money being taken for bribing voters.

The amount was kept in two bags, each containing Rs 67 lakh and the two passengers, proceeding to Kerala in a Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation bus, were taken into custody for questioning as they were unable to provide proper documents for carrying the money, police said.

The amount would be handed over once proper documents are produced, police added.
