HYDERABAD: Police in Anantapur district of Andhra
Pradesh have seized Rs 35 lakh in cash that was
being transported in a vehicle allegedly belonging
to the Sathya Sai Central Trust, and detained the
vehicle's driver, a senior police officer said today. "A vehicle carrying Rs 35 lakh in cash has been
confiscated during checking at Kodikonda
checkpost under Chilamanthur police station limits
bordering Karnataka late last night. We have
detained the vehicle driver and verifying from him
the source of cash besides where it was being taken," Anantapur district Superintendent of Police
Shah Nawaz Qasim told PTI over phone. The vehicle allegedly belongs to Sai Central Trust
and apart from the driver no one else was there
inside. An amount of Rs 35 lakh that was kept in a
bag in the vehicle has been seized, Qasim said. On reports that the cash was being shifted from
Yajur Mandir, the private chamber of late Sathya Sai
Baba at Prashanti Nilayam in Puttaparthi town of
Anantapur to Bangalore, he said details would be
known after the interrogation of the driver. The Chilamanthur police had registered a case and
further investigations were on, he said. The mystery over the treasure trove inside the late
Sathya Sai Baba's personal chamber 'Yajur Mandir'
was unravelled on Friday, with the disclosure that it
contained 98 kg of gold, 307 kg of silver apart
from Rs 11.56 crore in cash. The Yajur Mandir had remained closed ever since
Sai Baba was hospitalised on March 28. Sai Baba
passed away on April 24.
