The students added that their teacher told them to throw away the box afterward. One of them said that they dug the box at the school yard while they were playing. When they opened the box, they thought that the coins and money inside were just play money since they don't recognize it. They used the coins as a substitute for pebbles used for playing a local outdoor game.

Meanwhile, the children said that their teacher left them only with the paper money, which they later showed to the media.
