Rs 30 lakh was seized from a SUV and Rs eight lakh from another car when they were stopped at a police checkpoint for election related checking to curb use of money, liquor and other undesirable things to influence voters, Superintendent of Police Suresh Prasad Chaudhary said.
The drivers of the two vehicles were detained in this connection.
"We have informed the Income Tax department about the seizure and they are investigating the matter. The Election Commission is also being informed about the incident. The origin of the money is being verified," he said.
The SUV carrying Rs 30 lakh was moving from Sonepur to Hajipur and the car from which Rs 8 lakh was seized was going from Hajipur to Mahua.
So far, the security personnel, flying squads and surveillance teams have seized around 2.4 crore in Bihar since the Lok Sabha elections were declared in March.
