Woman ‘ISI agent’ held with fake currency
In a major breakthrough, the police have arrested a suspected Inter-Service-Intelligence (ISI) agent and recovered fake currency with face value of Rs 4.8 lakh from her.
The accused, Savinder Kaur, is a widow hailing from Bhawani Nagar area in Amritsar. She was arrested from Amritsar.
Savinder was arrested following the interrogation of the kingpin of the fake currency racketYudhvir Singh alias Yodha, arrested on July 31.
With religious groups, Savinder (58) had visited Pakistan on many occasions in the past, the police said. Earlier, she lived in Srinagar and shifted to Amritsar during the days of terrorism in Punjab.
The police said she was dealing in fake currency for the last one year. The fake notes recovered from her are in the denomination of Rs 500 and 1,000 — she allegedly brought them three months ago.
Currency with a face value of Rs 2 lakh is in the denomination of Rs 1,000, the remaining fake notes are in the denomination of Rs 500, the police said.
Savinder used to purchase fake currency with face value of Rs 1 lakh for Rs 40,000 from her counterparts in Pakistan. She would sell these notes to Yodha Singh for Rs 55,000, who would further sell them for Rs 65,000.
These notes were distributed in several districts of Punjab, except Amritsar, and other neighbouring states, the police said.
“The woman did not know that Yodha Singh has been arrested by the UT police. She was caught in a trap based on Yodha Singh’s information,” Bhupinder Singh, Station House Officer of Sector-31 police station, said.
Savinder has reportedly told the police that she visited Pakistan more than six times with religious groups in the Samjotha Express and bus. The passport of the accused hasn’t been recovered, as it was submitted in the Pakistan embassy, <---- therefore against all this bus or train service..az by this route only drugs,fake currency and others stuff get smuggled mostly.Ek gandha hissa body(country) da kat ke phek deya hai , so usse wapis join kerneh ki means gandh ko phir apne ghar lahna ,bevkoof / loosers /fahtu ppls
Fake currency notes with face value of Rs 8,000 were also recovered from the house of Yodha Singh. Five other members of the racket were arrested last month.
Meanwhile, after examining the notes, officials of the Reserve Bank of India reportedly said it was difficult for a layman to tell these fake notes from original.
Trailing the racket
Raj Kumar Gill alias Raj Makhu was arrested near BSNL office on the road dividing Sector 48 and 49 on June 24 this year. He was going in an Alto car, which bore a fake registration number. The police recovered 38 fake notes of Rs 1,000 each under the mat of a Tata Safari car. On the same day, 12 fake notes of Rs 1,000 each were recovered from another accused Saurabh Choudhery. Another accused Ravi Choudhery was arrested on the same charges

AHMEDABAD: Shahpur police station officials caught a 47-year-old woman recently with 12 fake currency notes of Rs 500 denomination. She was taken into custody to know the origin of the currency notes. Police are also searching for an absconding youth accompanying her.
According to Shahpur police station officials, Fatima Mumtaz Husain Sayed, a resident of Juhapura, went to Delhi Chakla branch of Union Bank of India on March 9 afternoon to pay an instalment for a vehicle loan taken by her son-in-law Mehboob Khan. At that time, she deposited the currency notes to the cashier on the counter.
"However, as the notes did not have security thread and a different colour scheme, he got suspicious and informed branch manager about it, who in turn, roped in police. We have arrested Sayed and are questioning him about from where she got the notes. According to her, a youth resident of Narol near Bombay Hotel gave her the fake currency," said a police official.
