    Since his name is Mahendra Singh Rao, he might not have any bad intentions. He might be carrying this money for some charity work or for donations to some charitable groups!

    Money donated for charity is tax free. What is the need to carry such huge amount of cash? I have observed even in GCC countries some prominent banks and exchange companies don’t charge commission for transfers to bank accounts of charitable organizations.
