Bengaluru, Sep 16: A bike rider was shocked as he saw a box of new currency notes on the seat of his bike which was kept in the parking lot. Without thinking for a moment, he escaped with the box.
The box contained Rs 94 lac. Now the youth is in police custody along with the stolen money. Varun Gowda, resident of Srinagar in the city, is the youth who is in police custody. He was working in the credit card section of a private bank. He could have returned the money honestly. But greed overtook his senses and he has unnecessarily got a case filed on him.
On September 6, Pramod, a resident of Chandra Layout, had gone to a lawyer’s office with a box containing Rs 94 lac for purchase of a plot. As there was some problem with his car door opening, he kept the box on the Activa scooter that was nearby. Later, he went to the lawyer’s office and forgot to take the box. As he returned from the office of lawyer, the box and the scooter were not seen in the parking lot.
Chandra Layout police registered a case and saw the footage of more than 300 CCTVs and came to know that it was Varun Gowda, who had taken the box with cash.
When police took Varun into custody and searched his home, the box with Rs 94 lac was found. It is said that Varun was shocked as he got such a huge amount and was not knowing what to do with it.
Chandra Layout police are investigating further.
