Kolkata NIA court convicts two in Baishnabnagar  FICN case

New Delhi, Feb15(UNI) Kolkata NIA Special Court has convicted two people in connection with Fake Indian Currency Note (FICN) case, an official release said here on Saturday.

Sheikh and Tejal Sk, residents of Malda district, were arrested near Indo-Bangladesh Border at Baishnabnagar in Malda district jointly by State police and a team of Border Security Force (BSF) on March 30, 2016 for possessing FICN of face value Rs 9,80,000, in the denominations of Rs1000/- and 500.



NIA took over the case and re-registered the same case on August 4, 2016.



After completion of investigation, the federal terror probe agency filed a charge sheet against three accused Nasir Sheikh, Tajel Sk and Durul Hoda under sections 120B and 489B of IPC and 16, 18 & 20 of UA(P) Act.

The first two arrested accused pleaded guilty for the charges against them.

"The third accused Durul Hoda is a Bangladeshi National and is absconding" the probe agency said.

NIA has sent a request to Bangladesh for assistance under Mutual Legal Assistance Treaty for tracing the absconding accused, the agency added.

During investigation, it was established that the accused, along with their associates in Bangladesh, hatched a criminal conspiracy for procuring and circulating fake Indian currency notes in India.

Investigation also revealed that FICN was smuggled from Bangladesh via Indo-Bangladesh and was to be circulated in other parts of the country, the probe agency further informed.
