A man, suspected to be the kingpin of a fake currency racket running in the region, was arrested by a CBI team from Malda on Wednesday, a senior police officer said.

Acting on a tip-off, a five-member CBI team arrested Musharraf Hussain (30) from his Kaliachak residence, the officer said.

The investigating agency had zeroed in on Hussain after interrogating several persons allegedly involved in the racket, arrested from Uttar Pradesh and other places.

Hussain is believed to have been in regular contact with agents in Bangladesh.
