The Delhi Police Special Cell arrested two people for allegedly circulating fake currency. They two have been identified as Ramandeep Singh Kohli (33), a Dwarka resident, and Brijesh Nandan Bahnot (40), from Panchkula.

“They are allegedly involved in cases of cheating, impersonation and human trafficking. The arrests came after a tip-off about their activities,” said DCP (Special Cell) Alok Kumar.

Singh was arrested on January 24. Investigations revealed that he had been living in Dwarka, as Manjeet Singh. A loaded .32 bore pistol with 7 live cartridges was recovered from him.

“He produced a forged arms license allegedly issued from Amritsar. A raid was conducted at his flat from where fake notes worth Rs 55,000 were recovered,” said Kumar.

A double-barrel 12 bore gun with 60 live cartridges, 30 live cartridges of 7.65 bore caliber, one rifle of .22 bore caliber and various ID proofs in fake names and address were recovered.

In 2002, he had got involved in illegal passport racket. Then he and his associates Rajeev Bajaj and Jaideep were arrested and released on bail.
