TUTICORIN: A team of officials conducted surprise checks in the omnibuses proceeding to Chennai and other destinations from here to prevent the movement of unaccounted money.
As the police personnel and the flying squads are confiscating the unaccounted money being carried by the persons to avoid the bribing of voters in the Assembly polls, a team of officials led by Deputy Tahsildar Kumar and others conducted surprise checks in the omni buses being operated to various destinations from Tuticorin.
However, the check that was conducted on Ettayyapuram Road did not yield any money.
A flying squad led by special tahsildar Vasantha Rajan and police officials conducted a vehicle check at Sirayankuzhi near Marthandam on Tuesday.
When they stopped a car, Rs.10 lakh was found in the car. George Stephan of Karunaghapally in Kerala told the squad that he was going to Nagercoil.
However, as he could not produce proper documents for carrying such huge amount, the police seized the amount along with the car.
Another squad at Kanyakumari conducted a surprise check in a lodge based on specific information that a political party leader was distributing money to voters. But it could not find anything either in the lodge or car.
