Authorities in India say they are considering charges of negligence against bank officials after termites destroyed millions of rupees. 10 million rupees ($222,000 US) in currency notes were stored in a steel chest at a bank in northern India. When a manager opened the reinforced room in an old bank building, he discovered the termite damage. Officials say termites had damaged furniture and other documents at the bank in the past. A police official told reporters, “It’s a matter of investigation how termites attacked bundles of currency notes stacked in a steel chest.”
He says police will continue to look into the matter.

Matthew 6:19-21 (CEV) (19) Don't store up treasures on earth! Moths and rust can destroy them, and thieves can break in and steal them. (20) Instead, store up your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy them, and thieves cannot break in and steal them. (21) Your heart will always be where your treasure is.
