Police have arrested two Indian nationals with Rs 9.5 million for which they couldn't reveal the source.
A team deployed from Nagdhunga-based Metropolitan Police Sector nabbed Sagar Mali (26) and Krishna Adhade (19) of Maharastra, India, with the amount on Friday night during a routine security checkup of vehicles entering Kathmandu Valley.
A press release issued today by Kathmandu Metropolitan Range mentioned that Rs 4.5 million was seized from Sagar while Rs 5 million was confiscated from Krishna.
Sagar and Krishna were travelling to Kathmandu from Chitwan in a microbus (GA 1 KHA 6645). Both of them were arrested after they failed to disclose the source of the money.
Meanwhile, further investigation into the case was underway, said police.
