The police have registered a complaint after some demonetised notes (Rs. 500) were found floating in a gutter in Saundatti in Belagavi district on Tuesday.

Some safai karamcharis found the old notes and notified residents of Bennikatti Galli, who, in turn, called the police.

A total of around 200 pieces of the demonetised notes, some of them burnt, were found. The gutter leads to Ladena Halla, a stream on the outskirts of the town.

“We don’t know where the notes came from. It may be part of a scam,” A.S. Kitturmath, a resident, said. He demanded a thorough inquiry. G.V. Arun Kumar, Circle Inspector of Police, visited the spot.

“We will see if this incident is related to other cases where old notes were detected,” Superintendent of Police Sudheer Kumar Reddy said. But on the face of it, there is no criminal offence involved, he said.
