Coimbatore: Bundles of currency note totalling over RS 2 crore were strewn on the bypass road near Madukarai on Wednesday after a car rammed into a government bus on the outskirts of Coimbatore. 

Wads of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes that sprinkled from the car lay scattered on the road. While some passersby picked up a few bundles, the police and income-tax officials rushed in and recovered Rs 2,44,95,830.

 

The source of the cash is, however, not known yet as two passengers from Kerala, who were travelling in the car, are undergoing treatment at the Coimbatore Medical and College Hospital.

It is the second time in two years that a carpet of currency has adorned the highways near here following an accident.

According to the police, Jaleel, 37, of Malathur in Malappuram, Jaffar, 30, of Kottayam, and Yasser Abu Bukker, 25, of Kozhikode, were travelling in the car on Wednesday from Erode to Kerala with a baggage of cash. 

The car, headed for Malappuram in Kerala, brushed against a TN State Transport Corporation bus at Podipalayam Pirivu near Madukarai.

In the impact, the car capsized and the rear door opened, leading to the shower of currency notes.
