Imphal, Dec 8: Even as the Eastern Command of the Indian Army has tweeted about the arrest of a couple for carrying Rs. 9,32,000 in new currency note by Assam Rifles near Moreh in Manipur along the Indo-Myanmar border, the state government authority as well as the Assam Rfiles authorities are not spelling out about the incident to media.
The report about the siezure of the huge amount of Rs. 2000 denomination was tweeted amidst the hardship faced by the common people of the state for getting Rs. 4000 from their bank accounts. 
The Eastern Command said that the arrested couple along with the siezed amount have been handed over to Police.
The same was reported in national Hindi News channel “Zee News” along with other incident of man arrested with huge amount of money in new denomination when common people are facing extreme hardship in getting just Rs. 2000 from account and that too after standing in queue for hours.
Imphal Times inquired about the matter to the Moreh Station through some channels, however, the authority of the Moreh Police station denied any such arrest or handing over by the AR.
When inquired to the IGAR South PRO, he too said that that at the moment there are no reports of any seizure of new denomination however there are report about the seizure of around Rs. 40 lakhs some days back in demonetized currency notes.
When Imphal Times digs the matter, I witness said that the Assam Rifles personnel who were on duty near Moreh had arrested a couple with huge amount of Rs. 2000 new currency note on Monday, the 5th December. The eyewitness however said that the amount seized on that day was around Rs. 7 lakhs. The witness who did not want to reveal his identity said that the couple had a business of selling cows.
Report further said that Government authority, bank authority here in Imphal as well as the AR are trying to conceal the incident as it would spark another crisis at a time when bank authorities are facing serious allegations and fury of the public.
