MUMBAI: Unit IX of Crime Branch Police in Mumbai arrested three persons for printing photocopies of Rs 2,000 denomination. The crime branch Police said, the arrested persons Jatin Solanki (37), Vijay Kamble (39) and Sachin Bansi (25) wanted to circulate fake notes in rural areas with the idea that people there would be gullible owing to less availability of these high denomination notes. When the three accused searched to find people who would help them in circulating the fake notes brought them in touch with the Police informer and this led to the arrest of the accused, Police said. The accused had even replicated a mark of Mahatma Gandhi on these notes but it was not a watermark, Police said. A crime branch officer said, “The fine print of Gandhiji on the notes resembles a watermark and can’t be detected easily. The colour of ink on the wades of the notes also differs and has varying shades. They wanted to try their luck in villages where many have not seen the real Rs 2000 notes and also don’t know the security features yet”, the officer said. Police said, Solanki told Kamble to find foot soldiers for circulating the notes and funded it by giving Rs 5 lakh. A second-hand photocopier machine was bought by the accused for Rs 60,000 from the same amount, said Police. The unit IX of crime branch Police laid trap at a restaurant in Bandra and apprehended them. A remaining Rs 2,000 fake currency was that was used for paying their restaurant bill was recovered by the crime branch Police.  ]]>
