Fake currency factory busted in Dhanmondi

Rapid Action Battalion (Rab) yesterday busted a fake currency-manufacturing factory in the capital’s Dhanmondi.

Rab members also claimed to have seized fake notes of more than Tk 1 crore and counterfeiting equipment, and detained two people in this connection.

They are: Saiful Islam (44) and Shah Alam (45).

Maj Shahriar Ziaur Rahman, second-in-command of Rab-10, told  The Daily Star that they had information that a fake currency-manufacturing gang was actively circulating counterfeit notes at different parts of the country for a long time.

“On Thursday night, we detained a member of the gang. Following information he provided, a team of Rab-10 carried out a drive at a house in Dhanmondi this [yesterday] morning,” said Shahriar.

In a primary investigation, Rab came to know that the gang was manufacturing and circulating those fake notes from the house, situated on road 7/A in West Dhanmondi, for four to five years, he said.

The Rab official also said that they were trying to detain other members of the gang, as some of them are already convicted in fake currency manufacturing cases.
