Mangaluru: A team led by police inspector Govindaraj of Mangaluru North police station picked up Manjunath, 56, a resident of Malleshwaram in Bengaluru, for possession of Rs 1 crore, without documents on Friday.
City police commissioner Sandeep Patil told reporters on Friday that Manjunath was found moving suspiciously with a bag. On checking the bag, the police found money in it. He was taken to be interrogated to the police station. On being questioned, he failed to furnish documents for the cash he was carrying, and was not able to provide appropriate answers. On checking, it was found that the bag contained Rs 1 crore.
The amount will be presented before the court, and an investigation is on into the issue. “This cash seizure is the result of intensifying the morning beat by the police. We had received information about the movement of such a large amount of cash, and that some rowdy elements were planning robbery and extortion. A similar case was registered at the Urwa police station last year. To prevent such offences, morning beat has been intensified from the past three days,” Patil said.
Manjunath was picked up from Car Street. It is learnt that he arrived from Bengaluru in a bus. Preliminary investigation revealed that a person from Bengaluru gave him the bag to be handed over to a person in Mangaluru, who in turn would give him another bag to be taken to Bengaluru.
