After a lull, Pakistan restarts fake Indian currency racket

The seizure of Rs 56 lakh face value worth fake Indian Rs 2000 currency notes in Kolkata on Thursday, alongwith the emergence of Malda in West Bengal as the entry point for fake Indian notes, has raised concerns in the minds of Indian establishment. According to official sources, Pakistan has restarted printing of new fake Indian currency notes and is sending them via Bangladesh. When the Centre demonetized Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes on November 8, all illegal trading in fake currencies came to a halt, but it has now restarted. It appears that Pakistan believes in the doctrine of waging war, not only through terror, insurgency, guns and bullets, but also by pumping in fake currencies to weaken India’s economy.
