According to the Medikonduru police, a six-member gang was allegedly printing and circulating fake currency by using a colour duplication machine and a printer. Based on a complaint lodged by the public, police traced the gang members and took two of them into custody.

Investigation officers reportedly seized a few fake notes of ₹100, ₹200 and ₹500 denominations. The South Zone police launched a hunt to nab the remaining accused.
