Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - - FRONT PAGE - Arvind Walmiki

The Mumbra po­lice ar­rested a busi­ness­man and re­cov­ered banned notes worth Rs68.41 lakh from him on Sat­ur­day night.

The ac­cused, Mukesh Narot­tam Thakkar, 50, is a res­i­dent of Kol­ha­pur. He had al­legedly come to Mumbra to ex­change the notes at a loss of 20%.

Po­lice said they got a tip-off on Fri­day that Thakkar would come to the high­way. They caught him near Reti­bun­der. “We found the cash in a few plas­tic bags,” said an of­fi­cer from the Mumbra po­lice sta­tion.

“Thakkar is in po­lice cus­tody. We are try­ing to as­cer­tain who he was go­ing to ex­change the money with,” he said.
