Kolkata: Personnel seized Fake Indian Currency Notes of the face value of Rs. 6.5 lakh and arrested two smugglers, including a woman, in West Bengal’s Malda district on Sunday, the last day of the year, a BSF official said.

Acting on a tip off, the Border Security Force (BSF) troopers from Malda district headquarter laid a special ambush in Kaliachak and Baliyadanga crossing and apprehended the two smugglers on Sunday morning.

“Two smugglers named Ainul Haque, 39, and Renu Mondal, 40, travelling on a motor cycle, were apprehended at around 5.45 a.m.. The trooper seized 325 fake Rs 2,000 notes of the face value of Rs 6.5 lakh from the arrested woman.

“The apprehended smugglers and the seized FICN have been handed over to Malda’s Kaliachak police station for further legal actions,” he added.

The BSF’s South Bengal frontier has seized FICN of the face value of Rs 62.38 lakh and arrested 11 FICN racketeers so far in 2017.
