Listen to the news

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) along with its Bangladesh counterpart has launched an investigation to check the smuggling of counterfeit Indian currency notes printed in Pakistan. It is alleged that the counterfeit currency was being smuggled into India via Bangladesh with the help of the Pakistani intelligence agency ISI. This is one of the cases being investigated by the NIA on foreign soil under the National Investigation Agency Act 2008.

NIA Inspector Arpan Saha has been appointed as the Chief Investigating Officer (CIO) in the case. Saha was posted at the Guwahati branch office of the agency. The Pakistani intelligence agency ISI is believed to be trying to damage the Indian economy by sending counterfeit notes. Let us inform you that even before the implementation of demonetisation, the ISI would carry out similar activities, however, after the cancellation of the notes, such cases were greatly reduced.

Saha directed the NIA to register a case on December 30 last year and start an investigation. Considering the gravity of the matter and its international connections, the Union Home Ministry took this into consideration and last month asked the NI to investigate it under the NIA Act. On November 26, 2021, the Bangladesh Police recovered Rs. Two smugglers arrested with Rs 7.35 crore worth of counterfeit Indian currency

Bangladesh police informed India that the seized counterfeit currency belonged to an Indian. The arrested smugglers were stopped by Fatima Akhtar and identified as Mohammad Abu Talib. The two were interrogated and it was found that the consignment of Rs 500 notes had been received by two Pakistani nationals, Sultan and Rafi. Now the Indo-Bangladeshi agencies have started working together to unleash this rocket.
