Bundles of currency notes in Rs. 2,000 and Rs. 500 denominations were thrown out of a window of a commercial building on Bentinck Street in Kolkata. It is not known who threw the notes out of the window.
The video of the "money rain" incident, which reportedly occurred when a team of income tax officers were conducting raids in a private office, has already gone viral on social media:
