3 held with Rs 4L fake currency


The Pydhonie police on Wednesday arrested three persons and seized fake Indian currency amounting to Rs 3.8 lakh from them near Masjid railway station. The case is likely to be transferred to the National Investigation Agency.
“We got information that three people—Alam Shaikh (28), Ataru Rehman Shaikh (38) and Gulam Shaikh (28)—will come near Masjid station with fake currency to deliver to their contact in Mumbai. We caughtthem,” said D M Kuprekar, assistant inspector of police. “All notes are in the denomination of Rs 1,000. The arrested, who were used as the “courier”, stay in a Vakola slum. One of the accused was given Rs 15,000 for expenses. 

We could not nab the person who was to take the delivery as he did not turn up,” said an officer.
The notes are of high quality and have over 98% features that are similar to real currency. All the accused originally belong to Jharkhand.
