A 22-year-old man was arrested on Saturday for allegedly printing counterfeit notes and Rs 7 lakh in fake currency was seized from his premises in the eastern suburb of Mankhurd here, police said. Based on a tip-off, the police raided the premises belonging to Rohit Shah, a salesman, in Jyotirling Nagar locality in Mankhurd, and seized fake currency of various denominations from his possession, an official said.

The police also recovered a printer, laptop, and other materials, worth more than Rs 2 lakh, used for printing fake currency, he said.
