BREAKING! Rs 1.54 crore in new notes seized in Assam, a loophole or major flaw?
GUWAHATI, Dec 13: In one of the major haul post demonetization, the CID and the Income Tax on Tuesday made yet another shocking discovery upon finding Rs 1.54 crores in new currency.
The huge amount of money was kept in a house at Bhetapara in Guwahati. A total of Rs 1.54 crore in Rs 2,000 currency notes and Rs 75000 in the new Rs 500 as well as in Rs 100 and Rs 20 notes was seized.
Investigating officials have refused to divulge details of the raid so far apart from what we know as of now. The massive haul of money was seized from the possession of Hardev Singh Bedi, owner of Mezbaan lounge bar in Ganeshguri.
The question that is bothering everyone is what if Modi's move was never really full proof. It is a massive blow not to the rich and the corrupt but instead to the poor who are still struggling to get enough money from ATMs and banks.
Has a loophole been figured by the black money hoarders whose deep pockets allowed them to easily accumulate huge amounts of exchanged currency in just over a month of PM Modi's big announcement or is there something else?
One thing is certain, these scattered events of recovery all over the country could only be specs of even more hoarding already done.
