Fake note manufacturer held in DemraNew Age Online
Rapid Action Battalion has arrested a youth in the capital’s Demra area and seized Tk18 lakh counterfeit Bangladeshi notes, officials said Tuesday.
Acting on a tip-off, a team of RAB-10 arrested Mohammad Rabbi, 23, from Dagair Bazar area in Demra at about 6:00pm Monday when he was waiting for a retailer to sell those fake notes, said Khandokar Fazle Rabbi, operation officer of RAB-10.
Fake notes have a market where those are traded, said an official.
The RAB men, then, escorted Rabbi to his rented house where the law enforcers unearthed bundles of counterfeit notes of Tk 1,000 denomination. They also found large volume of currency making paper, accessories and machineries used for manufacturing counterfeit notes.
Following interrogation, the alleged criminal confessed his involvement and said he used to sell the fake notes of Tk 1 lakh at Tk 15,000 to the retailers. After primary interrogation, Rabbi will be handed over to Demra thana, RAB officials said.
RAB personnel, however, could not arrest any other retailer.
This is the second major seizure of fake notes in the last 15 days.
Earlier on July 23, the Detective Branch of Dhaka Metropolitan Police had arrested three gang members along with Tk 25 lakh counterfeit notes and also seized note making papers worth Tk 1.5 crore with other accessories from their possessions.
