A team of diligent election staff and police officers made a startling discovery during a routine inspection of a private tourist bus near the Kognoli check post on the Maharashtra-Karnataka border in Belagavi District. Upon checking the bags, they uncovered a whopping 1.5 crore in currency notes belonging to one of the passengers.
The individual in question was unable to provide any satisfactory explanation for the large sum of money, leaving the authorities suspicious of his intentions.
As a result of the lack of proper documentation, the money was promptly seized by the inspection team. This incident is just one of many that have occurred in the Belagavi district over the past 24 hours, with a total of 3.61 crores being detected at various check posts.
