During a routine vehicle check near Chintagattu ORR on Thursday, authorities seized genuine Rs.500 notes amounting to Rs 85,000, along with counterfeit notes of 500 denomination totaling Rs.4 lakh, two vehicles, and materials essential for counterfeiting currency. The reports indicated that Raj Kumar, the alleged mastermind, had a history of criminal involvement and previous imprisonment.

The investigation revealed that Raj Kumar, along with accomplices Rajesh, Boora Srikanth, and Manthena Kavya, offered commissions to a person known as Pathan in Nanded for introducing potential clients interested in counterfeit currency. Raj Kumar claimed to provide counterfeit notes at double the face value. As a result, Omkar Viswanatha Rao Boore, Kawal, and Sambaji were dispatched to Hanamkonda by Pathan to purchase the counterfeit currency.

The suspects had paid Rs.2 lakh in genuine cash to Raj Kumar, who then provided them with black-colored notes cut to the size of Rs 500 notes. He instructed them to wash the notes in a hypo solution to transform them into genuine Rs 500 notes. However, law enforcement intercepted Raj Kumar at Chintagattu Bridge during the delivery of the counterfeit currency to the other three suspects. The remaining three absconding suspects are currently being pursued by authorities.

Warangal Police Commissioner Ambar Kishore Jha lauded the efforts of the KUC police and Task Force personnel for their role in apprehending the suspects.
