Pakistani counterfeit money ring leaders are on the loose
Pakistani ring leaders of a syndicate of counterfeit money, Danesh and Fatima, have yet to be apprehended by the law, reports Bangla Tribune. The couple had initially started forging Indian rupees in Pakistan which they later brought to Bangladesh. Afterward, they expanded their operations and have been producing counterfeit rupees for the last eight years in various locations in Bangladesh. On April 17, Dhaka Metropolitan Police's Detective Branch (DB) have already arrested the former head of their Bangladeshi operations, Shamsul Haque, and five others from the couple's syndicate from Adabor area. Among the captured, Aziz was in charge of creating watermarks for the fake notes which are nearly indistinguishable from actual rupees. Police believe that Danesh is currently in Pakistan while Fatima is in Bangladesh. Besides the couple, five other convicts – Jaman, Firoz, Shobuj, Nur Mohammad and Selim Reza – are on the run. At the initial stage of their operations, the couple used to forge Indian rupees in Pakistan and then smuggle those into Bangladesh. Members of the ring would later circulate the fake notes in markets along the Indo-Bangla border, and in Indian. Danesh and Fatima would frequently travel between Bangladesh and Pakistan, however Fatima spent most of her time in Bangladesh. Danesh first started the counterfeit currency ring in 2009. A few years later, Danesh met Shamsul Haque, a cellphone businessman who was soon recruited to help with the circulation of the fake money. After Shamsul became proficient in the business, he left Danesh's ring and started his own syndicate. He continued his business along the Indo-Bangla border. He also set up operations in Dhaka, Jamalpur, Sylhet, Rajshahi, Chapainababganj and Kushtia. Although Danesh had contacted Shamsul about two years ago to renew their partnership, Shamsul was unwilling to cooperate. DB Assistant Commissioner, Golam Saqlain, told the Dhaka Tribune: “They would print four notes per A4 sized paper and sell ₹200,000 for Tk30,000-40,000. These would then be sold across the border for an additional profit of Tk5,000-10,000.” “We have captured six people involved in this business. But the main perpetrators are Pakistani nationals Danesh and Fatima. There are a few others involved as well, and we are actively looking for them,” he added.
