Mia allegedly supplied fake currency notes in Maharashtra, Karnataka and other parts of India, he said.
His questioning led to the arrest of Ashok Kumbar, resident of Chikkodi in Karnataka, in the city and the seizure of fake currency with face value of Rs 82,000.
The seized notes were of good quality and it would be difficult for ordinary people to notice that they were fake, the official said, adding that it was suspected that the notes were printed and smuggled into India from across the border. Further probe is on.
