The Maruti Swift model car was intercepted at Indirapuram when the driver tried to break through a police barricade.

The police personnel on the spot chased the car and on checking found the cash in the boot. The car is registered in the name of Ajeet Mishra of Gurgaon and two persons, Siddhartha Shukla and Anoop Agarwal, were travelling in the car at the time of the cash recovery.

The police informed the Income Tax department, and IT officials are trying to confirm the source of the money.

The certificate also mentions that Anoop Agarwal, carrying the money, was a worker of the party and had been authorised to carry the money to the Uttar Pradesh state capital.
