Rs1.41 crore seized by Election Flying Squad

Covai Post Network

An Election Flying Squad Tuesday seized Rs1.41 crore of unaccounted cash from a car near Sulur during a vehicle check.

According to the police, the squad stopped a private car and on search found the cash in two suitcases without proper documents.

Though three persons–a bank staff and two security guards, claimed that the money was meant for depositing in ATMs in three places up to Palladam in Tirupur district, the officials directed them to produce the relevant documents and take back the cash, which was deposited in the treasury.

Meanwhile, some DMK workers caught some persons, who they said were AIADMK cadres, for allegedly distributing money in Ponnaiahrajapuram in the city.

On a tip-off that money was being distributed to voters, DMK workers nabbed five persons and held them captive in a house and informed the police.

Though one managed to escape, the police took the remaining four to the police station for investigations.
