Posted on Nov 08, 10:39PM | UNI

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Kerala today demanded a probe by Central agency into the cases relating to seizure of fake currency notes in the State in the past five years.

Talking to reporters here, State President V Muraleedharan said the probe was necessary in the wake of alleged role of a Kerala minister's kin in the fake currency unearthed in Kozhikode about two-and-a-half years ago.

Many similar cases were registered in the State during the last couple of years, he said.

He said source of fund spent for relief work by certain minority parties, including the Indian Union Muslim League (IUML), should also be probed thoroughly.

Mr Muraleedharan said his party suspected close link between the IUML and the counterfeit note gangs in the State.

Alleging the role of terror modules in the hacking of dogs in Kozhikode, called for a high-level central probe into the issue.
