A huge tranche of money seized by the Central Industrial Security Force(CISF) in Dimapur from a man who arrived on a chartered plane from Hisar Tuesday has been missing, Economic Times reported Wednesday. The Rs 3.5 crore “unaccounted money” was seized following a tip-off by the Income-Tax department, but CISF officers were flummoxed when a local I-T officer who was summoned to the airport to take further claimed he had nothing with the “missing” cash. CISF apprised the Intelligence Bureau and Central Board of Direct Taxes of the situation.

The plane’s passenger was allegedly a prominent businessman from Bihar, ET said. The man left in the same aircraft after meeting a few persons at the airport. A source told ET that “someone big” in Delhi had allegedly sent the cash for a Naga businessman.

More details awaited
