Tirupati, May 17 (IANS) A curious case of a deceased beggar amassing Rs 10 lakh surfaced on Monday in the temple town of Tirumala.

Officials of the vigilance department of the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam (TTD) have recovered currency notes in various denominations from the home of Srinivasachari, who used to make a living through alms and petty businesses.

Srinivasachari was allotted a house in a locality called Seshachalam near Tirumala, and was residing in it since 2007. Ever since, he was keeping his earnings hidden at his home.

Following his death due to ill-health last year, and with no known family members, the TTD decided to repossess the house allotted to Srinivasachari.

When TTD and revenue department officials landed at the house and conducted a search of the premises, they came upon two trunks containing currency notes of various denominations.

The currency notes, including the now demonetised Rs 1,000 notes, totalled to around Rs 10 lakh. TTD officials have confiscated the money and deposited it with the TTD treasury.

The hill-top shrine of Lord Venkateswara in Tirumala is the world's richest Hindu temple, with thousands of pilgrims visiting it daily during pre-Covid times.
