Commenting on the case of a drunkard claiming to have found Rs 10 lac in cash, Shashi Kumar said, "On November 26, a person named Shivaraj who is doing petty works found money in a box near Pumpwell. There is no clarity on the exact amount he has found as against his claim with media sections of Rs 10 lac. He was saying that he got six bundles of cash in a box, Shivraj was accompanied by Tukaram. Shivraj also gave a few bundles of money to Tukaram. Shivraj and Tukaram used Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 respectively from the bundles to buy alcohol.
