Over Rs 24 lakh seize from onboard Sealdah Duronto at New Delhi Railway Station
Over Rs 24 lakh, in new Rs 50 and Rs 10 notes, was seized today from onboard the Sealdah Duronto at the New Delhi Railway Station, officials said.
Customs officers came to the Station Director's office this afternoon. They informed railway officials that they had received a tipoff about a "questionable currency movement" by the 12259 Sealdah Duronto, coming from Sealdah in West Bengal, Northern Railway spokesperson Nitin Chowdhury said.
The joint team, including Customs officials, was immediately formed as all senior supervisors were having a meeting there, he said.
"The train arrived at 13.23 hours at the New Delhi station. The parcels in the sleeper were off-loaded and taken to the outward parcel section where they were checked," Chowdhury said.
Further details are awaited from the Customs department, he said.
