You may have read the numerous theories around the new pink Rs 2,000 note – some have said it has a GPS chip, others said it was printed using radioactive ink, and then there are those who have recorded videos of it bleeding colour if put under water. Well, they’re all theories that have originated from various social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook and Whatsapp as forwards. But here’s another report that’s gone viral that sounds equally fantastical.

According to a report by The Hindu, a woman withdrew five Rs 2,000 notes from a bank in Kerala and it apparently started crumbling from the edges within hours. The notes were withdrawn by wife of PC Shareefa, a resident of Mukkola, from a Federal Bank branch in Taliparamba in Kannur district.

“I found the note crumbling while handing it. It could not be used as normal note,” PC Shemeel, Shareefa’s son, told the national daily about one of the notes. Reportedly, the other four notes were also in bad shape but the family was able to use them.

The son said that bank officials have been informed about the crumbling notes but they are are not willing to accept that the notes were given from that branch. He also said that his mother had taken out the cash after hours of standing in the queue.

As soon as the news hit the Internet, people couldn’t stop sharing the picture.
