Kolkata DRI raids: There was a startling shower of crisp currency notes from the sixth floor of a building in the city’s central business district on Wednesday afternoon when DRI officials were conducting a search in a private office on that floor.

Bystanders made hay as bundles of currency notes of denominations of Rs 2000, Rs 500 and Rs 100 were seen being pushed out of a window in the sixth floor with the help of a broom.

DRI sources told PTI that its sleuths had gone to the office of a private company engaged in export-import activities located on that floor to conduct search operations for alleged evasion of duty.
