Man held with counterfeit notes

A 25-year-old man from Jaunpur in Uttar Pradesh has been held with counterfeit currency notes outside Old Delhi railway station.

Over Rs 15,000 in denominations of fake Rs 100 notes have been recovered from him, police said.

Sarvind Yadav was allegedly trying to buy some items from a stall using these fake currency notes, but was caught by the shopkeeper and reported to a police team patrolling nearby.
It emerged he was trying to circulate the currency on behalf of someone who had promised him Rs 40 for every Rs 100 that he slipped into the market, police said on Tuesday.
Yadav’s arrest took place on Monday.

Policemen Yogender and Amit were patrolling near Old Delhi railway station when they heard a quarrel.

They enquired the two men quarreling and found that one of them had given fake currency to the shopkeeper after picking up a belt and a purse from his shop.

The shopkeeper had checked the Rs 100 note and found it to be suspicious and that led to a quarrel between them, said police.

Yadav allegedly revealed during his interrogation that a person from Azamgarh had given 200 counterfeit currency notes to him to circulate in the market.

Police said they are on the trail of the kingpin.
