On 19 November three Bhutanese men in possession of fake Indian currency were caught by the Indian police at Rangapani, India.
A Royal Bhutan Police (RBP) official said that they were on the way to Nganglam from Phuentsholing.
Asked how three Bhutanese had the fake currency, the official said they had exchanged the Indian Rupee (INR) from an Indian man to have lunch and for emergency cases.
However the amount they exchanged was Nu 3000 only. The official said one man was carrying Rs 2000 and the other two had Rs 500 each.
The men charged for carrying fake currency are in their early 20s to late 40s.
Meanwhile the case is being investigated by the Indian police. The RBP official said that they can’t go and investigate the case as it’s not under their jurisdiction.
He added that the three might be released.
The RBP official said that all the information which they received was shared by Indian police.
