After millions of rupees in cash were recovered by protestors who stormed embattled President Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s official residence in Sri Lanka, it was handed over to a court on Monday, AFP reported.

Protesters during the raid at President’s house discovered 17.85 million in Sri Lankan rupee (about $50,000) in crisp new banknotes but instead of keeping it for themselves despite facing an economic crisis, turned it over to the police on Saturday.
