Both Kumar and Pal told interrogators there are many agents and sub agents dealing in new currency and gold.

The two were apprehended outside the station with the cash, while waiting for a car driven by Malik’s employee Rajiv Thapa, the police officer said.

They travelled from Bandra to Delhi in the Sampark Kranti Express without ticket or any other valid identity card. They carried the Rs 27 lakh in new currency in a bag.

Pal works in Malik’s company, while Kumar received Rs 5,000 salary from Malik. He used to live in Malik’s residence in Pitampura. Both do not have any PAN card, police said.

The Income Tax Department and Intelligence Bureau officials, along with a team of the Crime Branch personnel, are jointly interrogating them, Yadav added.
