As if termites eating us out of house and home weren't enough...
In India, staff at the State Bank of India in Arthur were shocked when they opened the steel vault to discover that termites had dined on 10 million rupees, equal to $222,000 of currency.
In a report in the Daily News & Analysis, acting bank manager J.P. Dived blamed the age of the building housing the strong room, saying it was riddled with termites.
"We have been trying our best to keep currency notes safe but the termite problem here is so enormous that it would be better to move the branch elsewhere," he told Daily News & Analysis.
