3 B’deshis detained for possessing fake currency

Thursday, 06 December 2018 | PNS | BALESWAR

Three persons were detained for possessing fake currency notes in the town on Wednesday. The detainees were identified as Ibrar Kaji, Hafiz Anwar and Sakil Kaji, all Bangladeshi nationals.

Locals nabbed the trio from the Sahadevkhunta bus-stand in the town and seized three Rs 2000 counterfeit notes from their possession in the afternoon. Later, they handed the accused to the police.

Reports said that the three youths had gone to Remuna by an auto-rickshaw from Sahadevkhunta 15 days ago. The three Rs 100 notes they had paid to the autorickshaw driver was reportedly fake.

However, when the autorickshaw driver spotted the trio again at Sahadevkhunta bus stand on the day, he with help of other locals captured the trio and informed the police.

Police detained them for interrogation and seized a few fake notes from their possession. The notes would be sent to the Regional Office of Reserve Bank of India (RBI) in Bhubaneswar to ascertain whether they are genuine or not.

However, the accused refuted the allegation of their involvement in any fake note racket. They said that they were going to Remuna for fund collection to open a madrasa.
