Bundles of currency notes and some incriminating documents were found in a table drawer while furniture was being repaired at the Vyapam office here in Madhya Pradesh, police said on Monday.
A carpenter found the currency notes while repairing furniture at the office of the Madhya Pradesh Vyavsayik Pareeksha Mandal (Vyapam), and immediately informed an official there, a police source said.
A public relations officer of Vyapam informed police that the notes were found wrapped in a plastic packet.
The police source said a cheque in the name of a Vyapam official was also found.
The CBI has registered more than 80 FIRs into the recruitment scam in Vyapam. The Supreme Court in July handed over the Vyapam cases to the central agency. Over 40 people linked with the scam have died under mysterious circumstances.
