VELLORE:  A 26-year-old man was held for trying to deposit counterfeit currency in his bank account in a nationalised bank in Katpadi on Monday.

Police found that A Dilip Kumar of Srinagar Colony in Greamspet, in Chittoor, Andhra Pradesh had attempted to deposit Rs 1,500, including six fake Rs 100 notes, in his account in the State Bank of India  branch near the Chittoor Bus Stand near Katpadi, with the idea of withdrawing original notes from an ATM.

The DSP of Katpadi, Radhakrishnan said that the police received a phone call from the SBI branch manager who said that a youth had tried to deposit fake currency notes and they had made him wait, stating a technical problem in depositing the cash.

The police immediately rushed to the spot and picked up Dilip, an MBA student, for inquiry.

On interrogation, Dilip confessed that he had scanned the original `100 notes using a colour scanner.

Police registered a case against him under section 489 (b) of the IPC and remanded him.

They also confiscated a laptop and a colour scanner from his house, added the DSP.
