New Delhi, April 17:  Amid the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, three Rs 500 notes created chaos in Lawrence Road in Delhi on Wednesday afternoon.

The three Rs 500 currency notes were lying outside a house.

Locals noticed but no one dared to touch them suspecting that they may have contained coronavirus.

Local residents noticed three Rs 500 notes lying outside a house at around 1:15 pm.

Soon, there were a host of curious onlookers but no one came out to claim the unattended cash.

Even when the police arrived, they decided not to take any risk. An officer wore hand gloves to pick up the notes. Sanitizer was sprayed upon the abandoned currency and then it was taken away in an envelope.

At that time, no one came forward to claim the notes.

Later, the suspense ended when a woman, identified as Charanjeet Kaur, approached the police and claimed that the notes had belonged to her.

She told the police that the notes were a part of a sum of Rs 10,000 she had withdrawn from an ATM.
