A Bihar-based businessman, traveling by itself in a chartered jet, has been arrested today at the Dimapur airport in Nagaland for purportedly carrying Rs 5.5 crore in demonetised currency.
Officials said sleuths of central security agencies and CISF are questioning the man, recognized as A Singh from Bihar’s Munger district, quickly after his jet arrived. They said the jet had taken off from Sirsa in Haryana early today.
“The CISF sleuths acted on some prior inputs and intercepted the passenger as soon as he landed. He is being inquired and the cash getting verified,” they said.
An exclusive vigil has been implemented by security agencies and the CISF in the wake up of the demonetization of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes by the government.
