Duped with photocopy of Rs.2,000 note

A lottery agent at Chirayinkeezhu here was duped on Sunday when a Rs.2,000 note he received in a transaction turned out to be a photocopy of the original note.

An unidentified man purchased from him a lottery ticket worth Rs.100 with the false note, and got away with the balance amount of Rs.1,900.

The agent recognized the false currency note only later.
