Following demonetisation and the note ban, police caught a doctor in a car with Rs 100 notes worth Rs 67.68 lakhs. Dr Dilip Nanal, a child specialist and his driver were caught while in a car, where they had stored the cash in a rucksack. The police have filed a report against both of them and also informed the Income Tax department regarding this. According to a Dainik Jagaran report, IT officials have been enquiring into the matter as to how the doctor had such a huge amount of money and where they were planning to go with it. The 60-year-old doctor is a resident of Rajouri Garden and works at the clinic in his home. According to the police, Dr Nanal on Wednesday went with his driver Pratap Singh to his friend’s place in Chuna Mandi, in his red Swift car. His friend has a washing powder business, from whom the doctor took the Rs 100 notes worth Rs 67.86 lakhs and put in a plastic sack and went off.
Police got the information, that a doctor is carrying a lot of black money and fleeing in a red car, from an anonymous source. Upon receiving the information, Paharganj Police SHO IK Jha and team took prompt action and started following the car near Chuna Mandi. After running after it for four kilometres, the police car overtook them near Ramnath Vij Marg, Ring Road. When they searched the car, they found the sack filled with money. The doctor is now being interrogated about the cash. Speculations about the money being used to exchange with a commission or hiding black money, are rife. The police will interrogate the doctor’s friend too.
This comes after Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on November 8, demonetised Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes in the fight against black money used in counterfeit notes, terror financing and more.
