The National Investigation Agency (NIA) is believed to be searching for seven persons belonging to Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Uttarakhand who are allegedly involved in a fake Indian currency racket run by Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI).
The group used to arrange genuine currency for the fake and send it to an ISI key man in Malda in West Bengal. These genuine notes were then distributed among the ISI agents across the country, sources said. The details have come to light during questioning of two men ó Saleem and Anees ó arrested from Moradabad and Farrukhabad districts of Uttar Pradesh in April and August, respectively.
Sources said that Anees was based in Ahmedabad before he shifted to Farrukhabad in June after the NIA team raided his house there. Along with Saleem he had developed links in different districts of UP, Bihar and Uttarakhand.
The agents linked to the racket belong to Moradabad, Bhadohi (Sant Ravidas Nagar) and Meerut districts of UP while two are from Roorkee and Udham Singh Nagar of Uttarakhand. In Bihar, the NIA is searching for one man each from Muzaffarpur and Nawada districts. The arrest of two Delhi-based youths, Imran and Jainab, in April led to the arrest of alleged fake currency supplier Morgen Hussain from Malda.
