Delhi opined that out of 36110 Euros, 34000 Euros were acquired

time of personal hearing. Both the notices, however, placed sufficient
evidence in support of the lawful acquisition of 1000 Euros each for
authorized dealer. As regards 110 Euros, in his opinion, were lying
unspent from their previous foreign visit. These lawfully acquired
2110 Euros, were, however, used to conceal the 34000 Euros.
