Delhi Police is suspecting that an organized gang replenished ATMs in Delhi with fake currency notes having ‘Children Bank of India’ printed on them. In yet another case in a month, an automated teller machine in south Delhi's Amar colony area dispensed a fake Rs 2,000 currency note with "Children Bank of India" printed on it.

The fake bank note of Rs 2,000 denomination was dispensed from a private bank ATM in front of Sheetla Mata Mandir on Thursday. “It seems that various ATMs have been refilled with fake notes. These ATMs are situated in South and south-east Delhi. It seems that an organized gang of two-three people have done this job,” a senior police official claimed.

Delhi police has received a complaint from a user identified as Chandan. "The complainant, Chandan reported the matter through a PCR call. The fake Rs 2000 note bore prints of 'Children Bank of India' and 'Manoranjan Bank' on it," said DCP(south-east) Romil Baaniya. Delhi Police has registered a case against unknown persons under Sections 489 B (using as genuine, forged or counterfeit currency or banknotes), 489 E (Making or using documents resembling currency or bank- notes) of IPC at Amar Colony police station. A senior Delhi Police officer said that the case has been transferred to the Crime Branch for in-depth probe in view of recovery of fake notes from south-east Delhi in the past. In a similar case, a Sangam Vihar resident Rohit Kumar had been dispensed four fake notes of Rs 2,000 denomination, bearing "Churan label" and "Children Bank of India" printed on it, from an SBI ATM in Sangam Vihar in south-east Delhi, on February 6.
