The currencies were handed over to the income tax authorities, and Jayaraman, working in a private firm and on his way to airport, produced some documents which were being verified, the sources said. Meanwhile in Salem, a flying squad seized Rs 1.83 crore from a van that was to be deposited in an ATM.

Since there were no relevant documents produced by the occupants of the vehicle, the money was handed over to the sub-treasury, the sources said.
