Rs 100 crore in old notes seized in Kanpur house

Lucknow: Sixteen persons, including a noted builder, were arrested in connection with the seizure of over Rs 100 crore in demonetized currency notes from the builder’s ancestral house in Kanpur. The big cache was recovered from the house of Anand Khatri after the National Investigation Agency tipped off the RBI, the Income Tax Department and the Uttar Pradesh Police.
ADG (Law and Order) Anand Kumar said they had inputs that some persons were trying to exchange the money with the valid currency. Kanpur ASP Anurag Arya said the arrested persons belong to Lucknow, Mirzapur and Hyderabad and are collection agents. The UP Government said prima facie no terror link had been established.
