The Detective Branch (DB) of the Dhaka Metropolitan Police has busted a group that prints fake currency notes in the capital. Ten members of the group have beem arrested and fake currency notes having a face value of Tk. 1 crore recovered from different parts of the capital. The group was intent on circulating fake money ahead of Eid.
