An alert was sounded at 3.11 p.m. Saturday at the Noida City Centre Metro station on Delhi Metro's Noida-Dwarka line as soon as R.K. Tiwari, 40, of Satna in Madhya Pradesh informed a Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) sub-inspector that his bag was missing from the baggage screening machine.
Tiwari told the official that his bag, containing Rs.160,000 in cash, passed through a baggage X-ray machine but did not appear on the output roller.
"The sub-inspector informed the CISF control room where the CCTV footage was verified and a man picking up the bag identified," CISF spokesperson Hemendra Singh said.
"As the man had boarded a Metro train, we asked the driver to stop. Accused Jaspal was apprehended and handed over to Noida Police. The bag with the money was recovered from his possession," Singh said.
