The Detective Branch of police has detained eight members of a currency counterfeiting ring with fake notes worth Tk 5.2 million in Dhaka.
They were held during raids on two buildings in the city's Paltan and Kotwali areas between Thursday afternoon and early Friday, said DMP Additional Deputy Commissioner Md Yusuf Ali.
He said the fake notes of Tk 5.2 million (face value) and some counterfeiting instruments were recovered from them, but did not give their identities.
Police are always on the lookout for these rackets ahead of the two Eids every year when the counterfeiting rackets become more active.
