‘High quality’ fake Rs 2000 notes seized, NIA sends them for forensic analysis

Webdesk:- After the demonetization, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) made its first recovery of three fake Indian currency notes of Rs 2,000 which investigators say ‘appear’ to be of high quality.

“Following the introduction of new currency notes of Rs 2,000 and Rs 500, there have been around half a dozen cases where fake currency notes in the denomination of Rs 2,000 were recovered but their quality of far inferior. Most of them were just scanned copy of the note. But the recovery made on Tuesday by our investigators appear to be of high quality,” said a senior NIA official who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

The agency said it arrested an absconding accused Umar Faruq, a native of Malda in West Bengal, in a two-year-old case of Fake India Currency Smuggling (FICN).
