The Ludhiana (Rural) police claims to have busted a gang that was involved in printing and circulation of counterfeit currency notes.

A printer, white papers, some Rs 500 denomination fake currency notes and a car (bearing registration number PB JL 9433 ) used in crime was recovered from three members of the gang identified as Sukhdeep Singh of Dadhahoor, Sandeep Singh of Dadhahoor and Onkar Singh of Johlan village at a naka laid in Johlan village on Sunday afternoon.

Further investigation has been initiated to ascertain modus operandi of the miscreants and identity their accomplices if any. A case has been registered under Sections 489A, 489B, 489 C, 489D and 34 of the IPC against the suspects.
