A city court would hear arguments on framing of charges against a businessman and his accomplice who were allegedly caught with fake Indian currency to the tune of Rs 40.09 lakhs.
Additional Sessions Judge JR Aryan, who received the case file from a lower court after CBI filed a chargesheet, said he would hear arguments on framing of charges against Raman Kumar Sharma, a Delhi-based businessman, and co-accused Tehseem on February 15.
Meanwhile, Tehseem, a resident of Muzaffarnagar in Uttar Pradesh who is in jail since his arrest on April 6, 2008, also filed his bail application saying he has been implicated.
The accused are also facing prosecution in other cases filed by Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI).
Acting on a complaint of Deepankar Aron, Joint Director of DRI, CBI arrested Sharma on March 25, 2008 near Wazirabad bridge here when he was coming back after allegedly delivering fake Indian currency to Tehseem at Shalmi in UP, the chargesheet said.
Tehseem, who was arrested by DRI in connection with a case in Amrtisar in Punjab, was also found allegedly carrying fake currency.
CBI, which has booked the accused under the provisions of IPC dealing with conspiracy and fake currency, allegedly recovered fake notes to the tune of Rs 40.09 lakhs from them.
