He carried a sum of 20,500 rupees in cash to buy a tin-shed from Mahua Bazaar. While on the way he realized that cash is missing.

He walked back a few kilometers to find the money but unfortunately, he couldn’t find anything. He came back home after losing his two months of income. But then he got to know from his neighbours that there are viral messages on social media claiming that ‘coronavirus infected notes’ are recovered by police.
