Coimbatore: Days ahead of the elections, Rs 37. 5 lakh was seized from a car of a private security agency by the election flying squad yesterday. The money was found during a regular vehicle check in the city.

The occupants in the car failed to produce valid documents to support their claims that the cash was being taken to be deposited in an ATM, said a media report.

The officials then kept the seized money in the treasury and it would be handed over to the security agency when they produced the documents.
