Big cash haul: After Ranchi, Rs 46 lakh cash seized from car in Ramgarh

Big cash haul: During a heated exchange of political accusations regarding a significant cash discovery at the residence of an aide to a sitting Jharkhand minister and Congress figure, the Static Surveillance Team (SST) confiscated a sum of Rs 45,90,000 from a vehicle in Ramgarh on Wednesday.

An official of the Static Surveillance Team (SST) told ANI, "During a vehicle check by the Static Surveillance Team (SST) team in Ramgarh on Wednesday, currency notes to the tune of Rs 45,90,000 were recovered from a car."


However, there was no official word yet on who the car was registered to.

The SST official informed further that the seized amount was handed over to a Sales Tax team.

"The seized amount was handed over to a Sales Tax team. The Sales Tax Department has since briefed the Income Tax Department about the cash recovery and the latter will decide on the further course of action after carrying out an investigation."

As the amount of currency notes found previously with the minister's aide's help exceeded Rs 30 crore, a political uproar ensued, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi even mentioning the seizure in one of his campaign addresses.

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Tuesday apprehended the minister's personal secretary, Sanjiv Lal, and the secretary's domestic assistant in relation to the cash discovery.
