A video which shows a tyre stuffed with large amounts of cash is being shared with users claiming that this is a new way of transferring money ahead of the 2023 Karnataka Elections.
The state will vote on 10 May, and the results will be declared on 13 May.
News reports: A Google Lens search led us to a report published on NDTV in 2019 which carried a similar visual as the viral video.
It mentioned that the I-T department seized Rs 2.3 crore in cash from a spare tyre in Karnataka.
The tax department received a tip-off about the cash being transported from Bengaluru to Shivamogga before the 2019 General elections, which was then intercepted.
The report also carried a video uploaded by news agency ANI about the same incident.
