Delhi Police on Friday claimed to have smashed a fake currency racket with the arrest of two persons, including a Nepalese national, and recovery of counterfeit notes having a face-value of Rs 3.5 lakh.

The duo, identified as Sunny Singh Kunwar (30), the Nepalese national, and Madan Tomar (27), were arrested on Thursday from Okhla on a tip-off, additional commissioner of police (South-East) Ajay Chaudhry said.

The interrogation of Kunwar, who was arrested first, led to the arrest of Tomar.

Police also located the house in Gandhi Nagar area where they allegedly used to print fake notes using computers.

Hailing from Nepal's Mahakali Anchal, Kunwar used to work as an embroidery worker. He had also worked at roadside eateries. Tomar used his computer skills to print fake notes.
