The incident happened when passersby noticed someone struggling to get rid of bundles of Indian currencies through the sixth-floor window of the building at 27, Bentinck Street. In a bizarre incident, pedestrians and road-side vendors were seen elbowing each other to grab as much as they can of the bundles of notes in denominations of Rs 100, 500 and 2,000 that were raining down from the window of a commercial building in central Kolkata on Wednesday evening.
The raid was conducted under the supervision of Deepankar Aron, Additional Director General, DRI, Kolkata Zonal Unit. “Probe revealed the owner of the firm threw away nearly Rs 4 lakh. All of them were detained for questioning,” a senior DRI official said.
Soon after, as the notes started raining down, there was chaos in the area and people rushed to get hold of their share of free cash. The local police reached a little later and cordoned off the area. They recovered Rs. 3.7 lakh from the building premises. Later, it was learned the currencies were being thrown from an import and export company’s office when a team of officers from the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) raided the premises in a money laundering case.
An eye witness told that ” It was around 3 pm when I heard about the incident, I couldn’t believe my eyes. My office is in the vicinity and I rushed to see what happened. As I reached the building, I was dumbfounded to see currency notes of Rs. 2000 and Rs. 500 floating in the air.” The building barely a few 100 meters from the Income Tax Office.
