Meghalaya: Old currency notes worth Rs 5.5 lakh found abandoned in Shillong

SHILLONG, June 19 2017: It seems the demonetisation effect is still giving some a tough time to deal with reality and while the exchange period is way passed its deadline, some were still keeping the old notes until yesterday when bundles of old 500 notes were found abandoned in the city.

The cash worth Rs 5.5 lakh was found abandoned in a plastic bag near Manipuri Mandir on Bomfyle Road in Laitumkhrah on Sunday evening.

The abandoned cash was found by a resident around 7.30 pm. It was later handed over to police.
