    When you have money that is totally unaccounted for then you are afraid of being caught, the next best thing would be to throw the money in some poor neighborhood, rather than tearing it up. By the action of the people who threw these notes away one can see how mean and selfish they are. Must be Sharada scam money that cannot be whitened even by the white sari leader
