The Static Surveillance Team has seized `3.60 lakh from a businessman for carrying the cash without valid documents, during the early hours of Tuesday at Ambur town.

The team lead by Revenue Inspector M Paranjothi conducted a vehicle check at Rajiv Gandhi Statue along the National Highway-46 in Ambur town. The team intercepted the car of Askar, a businessman and a resident of Bangishop on the outskirt of Ambur, and  conducted a check at 12.30 am on Tuesday. They found Askar carrying `3.60 lakh without valid documents.

Askar told the the team that he had withdrawn the money from his account at the Indian Bank at Ambur on Saturday, to purchase leather material from Bangalore. But he returned from Bangalore with the cash without buying them.

The team, however, seized the cash for not carrying documents to prove his claim. “The cash will be deposited in the district treasury,” said nodal officer of the squad, Shantha Mani.

The SST attached to Ambur constituency was one among the 39 teams formed in 13 constituencies in the district, following the direction of the Election Commission of India, to manage checkposts and keep a watch on movements of cash, illegal liquor, arms and any suspicious items.

Askar could appeal further and submit appropriate documents to the Collector-cum-District Election Officer to get back his money, added the SST officials.
