Mathura: A rickshaw puller went to the cops here on Sunday after the Income Tax department served him a notice to cough up over ₹ 3 crore here in Uttar Pradesh on Sunday.

A resident of Amar Colony in the Bakalpur area in Mathura, Pratap Singh lodged a complaint at the Highway police station and claimed fraud after he received the IT department notice.
