The elderly man, identified as Bhagwandeen, a resident of Kasimpur village in Khairabad, had sold a piece of his land for Rs 4 lakh at the district’s Vikas Bhavan Registry Office.
While coming out of the office, a monkey snatched his bag and perched on a tree.
The monkey notoriously started showering money in the air and even tore up notes worth Rs 10,000 to Rs 12,000.
Initially, several people gathered at the spot and started collecting the cash. However, the money was later returned to the aggrieved man.
A case has been registered on the matter in a Police Station of Sitapur’s Kotwali area.
