New Delhi (Sputnik): It looked like something straight out of a movie as people saw currency notes literally floating in the air and scurried to collect the money that rained down from a high-rise building on Wednesday evening in the Indian city of Kolkata.

Bundles of currency notes in Rs. 2,000 and Rs. 500 denominations were thrown out of a window of a commercial building on Bentinck Street in Kolkata. It is not known who threw the notes out of the window.

The video of the "money rain" incident, which reportedly occurred when a team of income tax officers were conducting raids in a private office, has already gone viral on social media:

The Directorate of Revenue Intelligence has, however, denied any connection between the raids and money being thrown out of the window.
