A constable of the Nagaland Police including two others were detained at Kolkata airport Friday with Rs.92 lakhs in cash after they landed on a flight from Dimapur. According to Times News, constable Rajinder Pillai, retired constable Anil Kumar and Sashi Kumar, the businessman, were interrogated. Meanwhile, DGP Nagaland K. Kire, speaking to Nagaland Post Sunday evening, confirmed the report of the detention of one Nagaland Police personnel at Kolkata. DGP Kire however, denied any links between Rajinder Pillai with the state Police Headquarters (PHQ). He said the other two detained included-owner of Popular Bakery and a businessman from Dimapur. The report said both Anil and Sashi were later released after interrogation and proceeded to Bangalore while constable Rajinder Pillai was held back and being interrogated. The news report spread and along with it, various speculations such as-who did the cash actually belong to ? How could a mere constable have so much money and how could he afford to fly from Dimapur to Bangalore? Sources also said some official was constructing a hotel in Bangalore and suspected the cash was meant for that purpose. Sources disclosed that Anil ran a workshop in Dimapur which was the approved firm of a department. He is also said to be related to an official.
