Lahore: Man with fake Indian currency copped
LAHORE: As reported by the Daily Times on Wednesday, the Anti-Corruption Circle of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) arrested a man outside the Allama Iqbal Airport Tuesday and recovered Rs 300,000 fake Indian currency from him.
The FIA intelligence unit, on a tip off, arrested Muhammad Waqas while he was waiting for two moneychangers at the airport’s parking.
The arrested man is an important link of the forged currency mafia and FIA has made two special teams to bust the remaining network.
During initial interrogation, the accused told the FIA officials that the currency was printed in India and smuggled to Pakistan.
He said he had two other accomplices that distributed the money to other moneychangers across the country. He further told the investigators that the money was also sent to Sri Lanka, Bhutan, Bangladesh and Maldives.
The FIA officials said these men were circulating the fake Indian currency.
