"Around Rs.5 million (about $83,000) in cash were found concealed in the bags."
Dhaka, July 13 - A Pakistani national was detained at the Shahjalal International Airport here Sunday for carrying a large sum of Indian currency.

The airport officials said Abdur Rahim,35, came to Bangladesh on a Qatar flight July 7, bdnews24.com reported.

He went to the airport early Sunday to retrieve two bags, Israt Jahan Ruma, assistant commissioner (customs), said.

Around Rs.5 million (about $83,000) in cash were found concealed in the bags.

However, it was not immediately clear whether the banknotes were fake or real and whether the man holding a Pakistani passport was a member of any racket. Investigation is going on.
