Mumbai: Gateway of India in Mumbai witnessed a shocking incident on Wednesday as floating thousand rupee notes were found floating on the water. Exited people rushed to pick up the notes from the water.
According to a resident of Kolaba, “I saw notes floating in the water. There was no tide so I went down to pick up two notes. After coming back home, I handed over the notes to my family and went back to the spot and again picked up two notes. I picked up five thousand rupees in the way but couldn’t collect more since the tides increased and police also arrived at the spot.”
According to locals, a foreigner had dumped a suitcase full of notes in the water. Three people were detained for collecting the notes and were let off after their statements were recorded.
