Three persons were arrested here on Friday on the charge of circulating fake Rs. 2,000 notes.

Initially, the Saraswathipuram police arrested two persons, identified as Ajit and Revanna, who were moving suspiciously on a motorcycle near Kavitha Bakery.

They recovered three Rs. 2,000 notes from Ajit and seven notes from Revanna.

On closer examination, the police found that the notes were fake.
