International fake note smuggling gang members nabbed in Delhi

Two members of an international fake Indian currency notes (FICN) smuggling racket were arrested with counterfeit notes of the face value of Rs 300,000 and suspected to be routed through Pakistan, police said.

After surveillance of nearly four months, the Special Cell of the Delhi Police nabbed 34-year-old Neetu alias Radha and 23-year-old Salim Sheikh from Seemapuri on Sunday.

"During surveillance, it was revealed that FICN was being pumped into Malda (West Bengal) by Pakistan through the porous Indo-Bangla border. From Malda, it was being handed over to racketeers in various parts of the country including Delhi, Uttar Pradesh and Bihar," said Deputy Commissioner of Police (Special Cell) Sanjeev Kumar Yadav.
