Cuttack, Jan 2:

The amount deposited in the Jan Dhan accounts of a self-help group (SHG) in Odisha’s Cuttack recently was black money, informed city DCP Sanjeev Arora today.


“Preliminary investigation revealed that black money was deposited in those accounts. A staff of a finance company has transferred the amount online. The persons involved in the incident will be arrested soon,” Arora said.
