"We have informed the Airport Intelligence Unit (AIU) and the Custom department."

"He was travelling by an Indigo flight," the official added.

The AIU and the Custom department would question Chijioke on his arrival at the Coimbatore International Airport about the source of the money.

Since the government's November 8 move of spiking Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 currency notes, huge cash in old and new currency have been seized across the country.
