The money was reportedly showered as part of a celebration of Agol sarpanch Karim Yadav’s nephew, Razak’s wedding. The ex-sarpanch showered cash on a mob assembled in front of his residence
A video of the scene has gone viral on social media. The former sarpanch, along with others, can be seen showering Rs 500 currency notes as a crowd gathered under the house

“Hello Enforcement Directorate,” joked another user. "This is very common in Gujarat. You can see Lacs of rupees flying in any bhajan-santwani programs," claimed a user
