DRI Sleuths Seize Rs 3 Lakh Fake Notes From Bhubaneswar Railway Station

Bhubaneswar: In a major breakthrough, the officials of Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) on Friday seized fake currency notes worth Rs 3 lakh from a passenger travelling in Kamakhya Yesvantpur Express at Bhubaneswar railway station.
Sources said, the fake currency was seized while being smuggled to Bangalore from Bangladesh.
An accused identified as Simar has been detained for further investigation in connection with the case. As Simar hails from a village close to Bangladesh border, it is suspected that the fake notes have been procured from Bangladesh.
DRI officials informed that 150 fake notes in Rs 2,000 currency denomination notes have been seized.
It is suspected that a major fake currency note racket is behind such operation as the accused is believed to have been engaged in transportation of the fake notes at regular intervals.
The arrest could be just the tip of the iceberg while a detailed probe has begun to bust the entire racket as fake notes are regularly being seized from several parts of Odisha including Bhadrak, Balasore and other parts of the State.
