Someone sold a sack of old newspapers to a scrap dealer, Imran, who later found out that it also contained over 2,000 Aadhaar cards, they said.
"The cards were to be dispatched locally. So, most likely the parcel somehow got misplaced from the general post office here," Ram added.
The police said that the postal department officials had been informed and the matter was being probed to ascertain how the cards were dumped in such a manner.
