Tunda got fake currency from ISI brigadier: Cops

New Delhi, Aug 20 : Abdul Karim Tunda, alleged Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist, used to get counterfeit Indian currency from a brigadier of Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), said police Tuesday. The two operated with the help of a conduit.

"Tunda has received several consignments of fake Indian currency arranged by an ISI brigadier, but he doesn't know his name," said a police officer.

Tunda, who was arrested Aug 16 from the India-Nepal border, claimed that he didn't know the name of the brigadier because he was not in direct touch with him, said investigators.

"A man named Iqbal Kana worked as a conduit between Tunda and the ISI brigadier. The brigadier would give fake currency to Kana who delivered it to Tunda to circulate it in India through his network," said the officer.

According to the officer, Tunda used to get the counterfeit Indian currency in separate consignments of Rs.1-2 crore.

Tunda told interrogators that the counterfeit notes were printed in Islamabad and Peshawar in Pakistan.
