Ahmedabad (Gujarat) [India], May 16 (ANI): National Investigating Agency (NIA) has filed a supplementary charge sheet in Junagarh fake Indian currency case.
"On Wednesday, we filed a supplementary charge-sheet in the NIA Special Court against the accused Tahir Shaikh alias Kaliya, resident of Kaliyachaka, Malda under sections 120B, 489B and 489C of IPC," said NIA in a statement.
In October 2018, NIA had seized fake Indian currency to the tune of Rs 1,52,000 from the possession of one Sanjay Kumar Mohanbhai Devaliya at Junagarh.
"During interrogation, Devaliya told us that he had purchased the fake currency from Tahir Shaikh at New Farakka to circulate it in crowded and market places in Junagarh," said NIA.
In January this year, NIA filed the first chargesheet against Devaliya. Shaikh was arrested by NIA in February this year.
The arrested hatched a criminal conspiracy for procurement of fake currency from Bangladesh and its circulation inside the country, NIA added.
Further investigation in the case is underway. (ANI)
