Fake Rs 500, Rs 1,000 notes seized in Malda

Press Trust of India  |  Kolkata 

Fake Indian currency notes (FICN) with a face value of around Rs 12 lakh were today seized by the BSF from near a border out post in Malda district while being smuggled from to India.

The FICN, in the denomination of demonetised Rs 500 and Rs 1,000, were seized near the Border Out Post in Kaliachak following a tip-off, BSF officials said.



While patrolling the area, BSF personnel found two suspected villagers running out of an orchard and challenged them, but they managed to escape, they said.

The patrol party then searched the area and recovered three plastic-wrapped bundles of FICN in a carton. The packets contained demonetised notes with a face value of Rs 11,80,000. There were 881 notes of Rs 1,000 and 299 notes of Rs 500, officials said.
