NIA arrests fake Indian currency operative from West Bengal
The 34-year-old Sariful Islam was arrested Monday and produced before a special NIA court in Kolkata and his transit remand was taken for his further production before a Lucknow court, a spokesperson for the federal agency said Tuesday. The agency says Islam, a resident of Malda district in West Bengal, was wanted in connection with a December, 2019 case of recovery of ''high quality'' FICN having the total face value of Rs 2,49,500.
''All the accused were members of a FICN racket in which fake currency was being sourced from across the Bangladesh border. Murad Alam had received the FICN consignment from Tausif Alam and had carried the consignment to deliver to accused Ansari,'' the spokesperson said in a statement issued here.
