Police recovered from the accused the possession of accused printers, a computer, and laminators and in all these, there was an indulgence of a woman too.

They claimed to have busted a gang involved in manufacturing fake currency and arrested four persons, including a woman, with counterfeit bills to the tune of ₹1.99 lakh.

They identified the accused as Jasvir Singh, Harwinder Singh, and Ravi of Sangrur district, and Piarjeet Kaur of Patiala city.

"Acting on a tip-off, a police team conducted a raid and arrested the suspects from the spot. During interrogation, it came to the fore that Jasvir, who was earlier involved in such cases, had formed the gang after coming out on bail last year."

The fake currency seemed to have been prepared using very high-quality equipment, Garg reported.
