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

          Pathetic. Please highlight the news in all channels so that the guilty are caught. Why no name of the person has been published ?

            Busiessen from Bihar takes a chartered flight from Hisar in Haryana and reaches Dimapur ,Nagaland and is found with Rs 3.5 crores in cash in discontiuued currency .The IT official is called and in the meantime money disappears ,without the busnesssen leaving airport .He is not confined and questiioed and is allowed to leave back in the same aircraft.The same shows that the money belonged to some politcian or industrialist with good conection with politicians etc and job is done in a planed manner in front of police and IT official and the common people are being harred and threatened for few lakhs .There are .laws and regulations for poor but nothig for rich and powerful .
