Fake notes seized, one held

Kandhili police arrested a 37-year-old man and recovered fake currency notes amounting to Rs. 50,000 from him on Wednesday.

Anbu, a resident of Vellipettai at Kandhili, had approached Perumal (31) at the Kunichi bus stop and said that he would give him Rs. 1,000 if he gave Rs. 500. Perumal handed over Rs. 500 to Anbu and got two 500-rupee notes. However, he found that the two notes were fake when he went to fill petrol for his two-wheeler in a bunk.

On receiving a complaint from Perumal, the Kandhili police traced Anbu at Periyakadinaickenpetti bus stop and seized fake notes from him. Police said that all notes were photocopy notes.
