Kota: A 17-year-old orphan boy who has been living in a child care home in Rajasthan’s Kota wrote a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi after he found out Rs 96,000 in banned currency notes in a locked room of his old home.
As per sources, the boy travelled to Sarawada village near Kota to visit his mother’s home. But after reaching there, he was shocked to found Rs 96,000 stuffed in his mother’s pillow.
The cash he found was saved by his mother who was allegedly murdered by a man.
According to Child Welfare Committee (CWC), Kota, Chairman Harish Gurubaxani said, “After their mother’s death, the children were staying at a shelter home here.
The amount is in 171 notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000.
The Union government on November 8 last year had demonetised high-value Rs 1,000 and Rs 500 notes, and asked citizens to get them exchanged at the RBI by March 31, 2017.
