Money platterDecember 30, 2019 17:16
Legend has it that a man prayed for money and then became rich by growing multiple plants from one -- giving the plant its name. Not sure if that was the case here but officials in Odisha over the weekend unearthed property worth over Rs 1 crore in the possession of a gardener-cum-horticulture extension worker employed by the state government.
On a tip-off officials raided the house of one Udhab Behera and that of his relatives in Mayurbhanj and Balasore district and found a neat stash. Besides the cash, Behera owned a three-storey house, 12 plots of land, a poultry farm, three two-wheelers, big-ticket deposits and investments in banks plus a huge amount of gold ornaments. -- Business Standard
