Three with fake notes held in Tripura

Police seized a huge stock of fake Indian currency from three people in south Tripura on Thursday.

They suspected the detainees to be part of a cross-border racket engaged in circulation of fake currency.

Acting on a tipoff, a police team arrested Manoj Debbarma and Ratan Sadhan Jamatia at Ailyamura in Sabroom, near the Bangladesh border. Police also detained a woman, identified as Kumaribala, a resident of Chittagong Hill Tracts in Bangladesh, from the scene.

Notes of Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 with a face value of Rs. 1,50,000 were recovered from them. The detainees were remanded in police custody. Investigators suspect the fake notes were smuggled from Bangladesh.
