Aizawl: A fake currency racket has been
unearthed in Mizoram with the police seizing fake notes with a
face value of over Rupees eight lakh.

The police seized 773 fake notes of Rs 1,000
denomination and 87 fake notes of Rupees 500 denomination from
the residence of a person here yesterday, Aizawl district SP
Lalbiakthanga Khiangte said.

Two persons were arrested in this connection.

Computers and accessories were also seized.

“They were using A4 size xerox papers, not the court
fee stamp paper as used earlier by other counterfeiters making
its detection easier", he said.
