The Harihar crime branch police have arrested a gang of seven, including JD(S) corporator Munna Pailhwan, in a fake note circulation case on Saturday and seized counterfeit currency to the tune of `4.05 from them. The police said that acting on a tip-off that one Pinki alias Munirsab would arrive at the KSRTC bus stand for fake note circulation, a police team caught and interrogated him. Later the police arrested Munna Pailhwan, Munirsab, Altaf, Aslam, Imitiaz, Ashraf and Farooq (Munna’s son) and seized the fake notes. Pinki had brought the fake notes from Kolkata and sought the help of local people to circulate them, police said.
