The police arrested the four with at least IRs. 8.1 million in fake Indian currency from two separate locations inside the Kathmandu valley, the Kathmandu Post reported Tuesday.
Acting on a tip-off, police on Friday raided a house in Balaju and found nearly IRs 2.7 million in fake Indian currency in possession of Sahebi Zamindar. Sahebi, whose real name is Kavita Barmasakaha, is of Nepali origin. She converted to Islam and took Pakistani citizenship after marrying her Pakistani husband Mohammad Ali Zamindar. She was arrested along with her elder son Kabir.
However, the police failed to arrest Mohammad, as he was not at home during the raid.
The same day, police busted another fake Indian currency racket in Kupandol after raiding a rented room belonging to Sheikh Ahmed, 52 from Parsa. He was arrested with at least IRs 5.4 million in fake Indian currency with his college going 18-year-old son Shahid Iqbal Ahmad.
Police officers investigating the case told the Post that those arrested made important revelations about the masterminds behind the racket, but they are finding it tough to trace them as the racket is run over mobile phones whose SIM cards are constantly replaced. Nepalnews.com
