A team of Gandhidham Local Crime Branch will soon go to Bihar for investigation in connection with a fake currency racket which was busted in Kutch on November 1.
Police said the two main accused, Ramshankar Mukhia and Prabhu Mukhia who are residents of Betia in Bihar, told them that the counterfeit currency notes with a face value of Rs 1 lakh were smuggled in through Nepal, which is just 15 km from their village.
"A police team will go to Bihar to find and nab the kingpins who on regular intervals supplied fake Indian currency notes to the accused," said a Gandhidham police officer.
Police said Ramshankar is already facing trial in another fake currency case while Prabhu's son was arrested with fake currency by the Surendranagar police some time ago, which indicated that the accused used to supply fake currency on regular intervals.
The Gandhidham police, which have obtained remand of the duo till November 11, said that two claimed that they came with fake notes to bail out Ramshankar's wife and brother from Palara jail in Bhuj and Prabhu's son from the Surendranagar district jail.
Ramshakar, his wife and brother were arrested with fake currency notes last year. Ramshankar was out on bail.
