‘Fake currency pushed at behest of Pak agencies’
New Delhi: The Delhi Police have told a court here that a consignment of over Rs 1.18 crore fake currency notes, seized by it in January, had been sent from Pakistan at the behest of its intelligence agency and banned terror outfit Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) to destabilise the Indian economy.
The police made this claim in its chargesheet, filed in the court of Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Vinod Yadav and indicting five Indians, arrested along with the fake currency note consignment on January 12.
The seizure of the counterfeit notes with a face value of over Rs 1.18 crore, concealed in 33 cloth bundles and loaded in two tempos, was made from near a godown at Dabri in West Delhi.
The police have named Zeeshan Khan, a resident of Dabri, Ash Mohammad of Uttar Pradesh, Ghulam Ahmed, Yakoob Ali and Mohd Rafiq from Jammu and Kashmir as accused. All of them are presently in judicial custody.
The Special Cell of Delhi Police has said that the fake Indian currency notes (FICN) were brought in India from Pakistan "under the guise of embroidery articles".
The chargesheet, running into several volumes, also names Mohd Iqbal alias Kana as a suspect, who according to police is wanted in several cases in India.
Iqbal is presently hiding in Pakistan for last few years and running the network of FICN at the behest of Pakistani intelligence agency and the LeT, it said.
A close relative of Iqbal, Ash Mohammad was in touch with suspect Hasan who even went to Pakistan to meet Kana for procuring the FICN consignment, the chargesheet added.
Police had seized the fake currency after it came to know about it while intercepting telephonic conversation between the accused and their mastermind in Pakistan.
