Jamshedpur: Sackful of torn Rs 500, Rs 1000 notes found in drain
Jamshedpur police recovered a sack filled with torn Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes dumped in a drain late on Wednesday.
Babu, a local boxer, told police he was crossing a drain when he saw the torn notes scattered. As he went closer, he was surprised to see a sack filled with the now-withdrawn notes.
“I immediately called up a senior player living in the vicinity, who came and we took the bag to the JRD Tata Sports Complex to show it to our coach. Soon we informed police who came to collect the currencies,” the boxer said.
Till late at night, Police kept struggling to fish out any proper note or match the torn notes in the sack but to no avail.
The sack carried only one half of every note while the other half seemed to have been dumped somewhere else or stored.
The notes were wet too. Hence counting became a cumbersome task , police said.
“We have informed the Reserve Bank of India and income tax department about the recovery,” Jamshedpur senior police superintendent Anoop T Mathew told HT.
He said the force will scan CCTV footage of the area to find out who dumped the sack in the drain. “Though it will be tough but certainly not an impossible task to locate the person behind the incident,” he added.
