New Delhi: Delhi Police have arrested a man for printing fake currency at his residence and using them in crowded marketplaces and liquor shops in west Delhi, a police officer said on Monday.
“The accused, identified as Ravi Sindhu, was arrested on Sunday from his residence in Vishnu Garden area after a police team raided the place following a tip-off,” Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Monika Bhardwaj said.
“A total of Rs 1,38,000 in denominations of Rs 100, Rs 500 and Rs 2,000 were found from his residence. A printing machine and a paper roll which he used to print fake notes were also recovered from the house,” Bhardwaj said.
