"This amount seems to be black money. The Income Tax Department is being informed," police officer Umesh Kumar said.

On Monday evening, Rs 15 lakh was recovered from two persons here.

Prime  Minister Narendra Modi had on November 8 announced that Rs.500 and Rs.1000 notes would cease to be legal tenders. The move was aimed at curbing hoarding of black money, terror financing and circulation of fake notes.
