Three lakh rupees wasted as vault lay untouched for four years at a railway station!
We must recover all losses along with interest from all those (ir)responsible!
In October 2016, a cash currency chest (vault) was bound for Ambala from Delhi. However, due to oversight by the railway officials it was not unloaded at Ambala railway station and reached Kalka Junction and remained there unattended to for nearly four years. When the railway officials woke up to the lapse, they traced the vault. Upon opening it currency notes of Rs. 500 and Rs.1,000 denomination amounting to Rupees three lakhs were found. However, those notes are completely useless as they have been demonetised. A committee of officials has been appointed to look into this incident.
