Full Story: 

Saleman’s extraordinary find took place while he was scouring the vicinity of Nagawara railway station in search of discarded items. The black bag he uncovered on the railway track held a trove of dollar bills. Uncertain about how to handle this unexpected windfall, Saleman contacted Bappa, a scrap dealer, to inform him about the money. Unfortunately, Bappa was traveling at the time and instructed Saleman to retain possession of the money until his return to Bengaluru.

However, keeping such a substantial sum of money in his humble dwelling proved challenging for Saleman. Consequently, he sought the assistance of R Kaleem Ullah, a dedicated social activist associated with Swaraj India. On Sunday, Kaleem Ullah brought this matter to the attention of City Police Commissioner B Dayananda.

Recalling the moment he shared the information with the commissioner, Kaleem Ullah stated, “When I informed the commissioner about the money, he asked me to bring Saleman to his office along with the money. Saleman, still in shock, revealed that he found the money on the railway track. The commissioner immediately called the Hebbal police and requested an inspection of the location.”

The intrigue deepens as the plastic bag containing the USD 3 million also held a letter bearing the seal of the United Nations. The letter contained a message explaining, “The economic and finance committee puts in place a special fund which was voted by members of the Security Council to assist the UN peacekeeping forces in South Sudan. Due to the skeletal banking operations and hijacking of such funds by unauthorized persons such as terrorists and dictators in these regions, the United Nations authorized the finance committee to place a visible laser stamp on the notes to keep them secure and reach them to the destination safely.”

The inclusion of a UN seal and the elaborate message raised questions about the origin and legitimacy of the money. To unravel the mystery, the Hebbal police initiated an investigation and took custody of the dollar bills. Preliminary assessments by the police cast doubt on the authenticity of the currency, suggesting it may be counterfeit.

In light of these doubts, the Hebbal police promptly dispatched the dollar bills to the Reserve Bank of India for a thorough and exhaustive verification. The outcome of this verification process is awaited with great anticipation, as it will shed light on whether this astonishing discovery is genuine or the result of a more complex and shadowy plot.
