The Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) has seized fake currency notes worth Rs 8.9 lakh from a local politician in Mumbai.
The DRI sleuths said that the notes were printed in Bangladesh and supplied via North-Eastern region in India.The seized currency notes were in Rs 500 denomination. "Out of 27 high security features in the original currency notes, the seized fake notes had about 15 features printed by RBI.
Incidentally, a Imran Alam Sheikh from the Congress party and two others were arrested by the DRI for running a fake currency racket in Mumbai. Sheikh is reportedly the general secretary of the Congress party's district committee.
"During interrogation, Sheikh began crying and spilled the beans about his involvement. However, he did not have any criminal background and is not the mastermind behind the racket. His brother, who is with Shiv Sena Party, has no trace of involvement," said a source from DRI.
