The RIICO police station in Rajasthan’s Abu Road seized hawala money worth 3.95 crores during a blockade at the Mawal outpost, from a Punjab-number car. The car riders, Gujarat’s Patan-residents Jignesh Bhai and Kaushik Bhai have been taken into custody. This amount is being said to be hawala money, which was being taken from Udaipur to Gujarat. It took five hours to count the money with a machine.

Station Officer Suresh Chaudhary said that the car which was going to Gujarat was frisked based on a tip received from an informer, and it had bundles of currency notes in a box which was kept under the front seat. Preliminary investigation revealed that the youths who have been taken in custody worked for a company dealing in hawala in Ahmedabad, and they had started the job of taking hawala money from one place to the other just four months ago, on a salary of 25 thousand rupees per month.

Both of their mobiles are now being scrutinized, and it is also being investigated as to who was this money to be supplied to in Ahmedabad, and where it came from.
