  1. A V prasanna says:

    Public memory is short. people do not learn from the mistake of others. Inspite of police warning not to leave their valuables in car unattended, people do the same. Result theft by lowering the glass or breaking the glass of vehicles.

  2. Howdy, Modi! says:

    It usually does not happen suddenly. This car person has such large amount of cash to spare and has no brain to keep it safe. That aside, unlike decades ago, there are various ways of not using the cash-indeed in many Western countries, cash use is discouraged if it is a large transaction. Such large amount of cash can mean money laundering, hence there should be a requirement of using certified cheque or bank transfer to make large possession of money legal. But in India, a land of corrupt and nefarious practices, it is no surprise cash is the king!
