Meghalaya: Traders arrested with huge amount of new currency, indicator of bank officials working in tandem with big businessmen!
Tura, Dec 22: Two people with an amount of over Rs 29 lakhs saw further development with the handover of the duo to the police with the BSF identifying the people who allegedly were behind the money move.
"The troops of the BSF showed their extra vigil on the international border, we carried out an operation on Hill Road and apprehended two Indian nationals namely Nasib Miya, (23 yrs), and Bilal Hossain, (22 yrs), of Pubergram under Mankachar PS in Assam along with new Indian currency notes Rs. 29,73,205/-denomination. The BSF party also seized one PAN card, one voter ID, two driving licenses, one mobile with two Indian SIM and one motor cycle, Bajaj Pulsar with registration ML-08 C 3502 from their possession.
The BSF team later handed over the two to the police team in Dalu along with the seized items after ascertaining that that money was sent by one Sanjay Agarwal, who is a well known cloth merchant in Mankacahr in Assam.
The money was to be given to one Lophu Sangma of a coal export company identified as Balaji Coal Export Company in Gasuapara
"They even tried to bribe us to let themselves go but the nation comes first. There seems to be a nexus between bankers and these big businessmen and that needs to be exposed. We hope the police team is able to get to the bottom of this for the sake of the country in a fight against corruption," said a BSF source on the condition of anonymity.
The current seizure comes as a huge indicator of bank officials working in tandem with big businessmen. Unconfirmed stories of similar acts have been filtering through though the same could not be confirmed due to a lack of evidence.
