HYDERABAD: Eight persons of a gang were nabbed by the Santoshnagar police on Monday while they were on their way to exchange new currency notes with old ones. 


On Sunday, when Santoshnagar police were conducting a vehicle check at IS Sadan, they found `58 lakh cash of `2,000 denomination with the accused.
