currency seized by custom as it was coming via courier

During demonitization, my cousin from Canada requested me to exchange his Demonitized currency. He subsequently via courier parcelled me Rs. 9,000. The envelope was confiscated by customs and i was issued a show cause notice. I visit Canada regularly and have a valid visa. Kindly suggest the best defence possible which i can take in my reply?

1. I deny that i was aware about the contents, and i let go the cash or,
2. I admit since its just Rs. 9,000 (Below Rs. 25,000 limit) and being a senior citizen and law abiding citizen kindly pardon me,
3. I admit and and ask them to levy a fine?

Any other suggestion/defence i can take in my reply


Thank you 

Retired employee.

The best way is to contact the cocnerned officer personally and seeking his help in giving explanation.  This can be done through a Chartered Accountant.
