500 note was sold for Rs 175
Shakir, arrested with fake notes, is the old ‘player’ of this business. Once after the punishment was cut, the business was re-entered. With this work, he had got huge money. He used to make fake notes of five hundred rupees at the cost of two rupees and used to sell it for 175 rupees. To show the people he used to work to put punctures in the petrol pump.
