They actually drove themselves into our trap, the RAB said

The Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) seized Tk1 crore in counterfeit money and detained three people from Dhaka’s Nabinagar area and Savar.

RAB 3 Senior Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Unu Mong said they detained one Sekandar during the raid in the Pukurpar Amtoli area and seized fake notes of the Tk1000 domination in 100 bundles worth Tk1 crore from their possession.

The computer and printer used for making fake notes were also confiscated.

“We went to them pretending to be a customer. We asked them to give us fake notes worth Tk1 crore in exchange of Tk30 lakh original notes and they agreed. At this point, we detained Sekandar, who came to give us the amount,” he said.

“They actually drove themselves into our trap,” said the RAB official.

Major Shibli Mostafa and Senior ASP Unu Mong of RAB detained two others from different places at Savar.

The circle makes fake notes on their own, RAB said.
