New Delhi, Nov 18: Scoffing at rumours, the Finance Ministry on Friday said there was no move to seal bank lockers nor was it true that the ink of the new Rs 2,000 notes has been bleeding in some cases.

"Myth: Next move is to seal bank lockers and confiscate gold, diamonds and jewellery. Reality: This is baseless.
