Police arrest fellow officer involved in fake currency racket in Poonch, Kashmir

Poonch , Sat, 04 Feb 2012 ANI

Poonch, Feb 4 (ANI): Police in Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch District on Saturday arrested a fellow officer, alleged to be involved in fake currency racket, which was being operated from across the border.


Police officials acted on a tip-off and arrested the culprit, who made startling revelations during interrogation.


Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP), Ashkoor Ahmed Wani told reporters that Special Police Officer (SPO), Mohammad Rafi, posted near Line of Control (LOC) was working in connivance with intruders from Pakistan who brought fake Indian currency and illegal weapons to India.


"He came in contact with some of the Pakistani drivers and then he got in touch with a militant named Manzoor from Pakistan and the launching commander of Lashkar-e-Taiba. We have recovered two Pakistani mobile phone SIM cards and few mobile phones from him and few documents, which have some addresses on it. On the basis of these things, we came to know that he has brought Indian fake currency worth ten to twelve lakhs in India in the last one year," said Wani.


Rafi was posted at the trade centre in Poonch Dstrict from where he worked for the militants based in Pakistan.


He was serving the police department for the past seven years.


Wani further told reporters that Rafi supplied a pistol to an ultra named Hafeez who was arrested last month from Kashmir.


Infiltration has been a major point of contention between India and Pakistan, and the Army has claimed that the militants continued to operate despite a ceasefire between the two armies and a three-metre-high barbed wire security fence along most of the 742-kilometre-long Line of Control (LoC).


India accuses Pakistan of training militants in its part of Kashmir and helps them infiltrate to aide insurgency in the disputed Himalayan region.


Pakistan says it only extends moral and diplomatic support to what it calls an independence struggle by Kashmiris. (ANI)
