PGurus is bringing a sensitive report on fake currency racket, prepared by Col. Purohit in November 2007, now languishing jail for UPA’s controversial ‘Hindu Terror’ theory. This report is on the modus operandi of fake currency operators in Maharashtra, Gujarat and Karnataka. Those days Purohit was a Major in Special Task Cell in Southern Command’s Liaison Unit.
In his four page report to his superiors in the Unit, Purohit identifies Abu Azmi, Samajwadi Party’s controversial leader in Mumbai (Page 3). The report says the fake currency racket operates with possibly the knowledge, involvement of several politicians, government officials, businessmen and local policemen. The full report is published at the end of this article.
“Own sources have functioned with two such modules on at least three occasions. One getting close to these gps (groups), it was revealed that the entire business is masterminded by Abu Azmi, an MLA from Samajwadi Party, Mumbai,” said the report detailing how Purohit’s team penetrated into the fake currency racket.
Purohit’s report lists out Maharashtra’s Bhiwandi, Malegaon, Solapur, Vasai (Basain), Jalgaon, Balsad and Surat (in Gujarat) and Bidar and Vijapur (in Karnataka) as prominent producing centres of fake currency. The report also says other areas are Kalyan, Igatpuri and Wada in Nasik and Thane and Purohit’s team had landed in these areas.
His report says his sources were introduced to fake currency modules by local politicians. His sources approached the fake currency racket to learn the techniques of printing. It also details the methods of printing fake currency notes and the code words used in the field.
Another shocking revelation in the report is the smuggling of chemicals from the Indian Security Press in Nashik. The procurement of chemicals from the Government’s currency printing unit by the fake currency racket was confirmed by General Manager to the Army Intelligence officials.
The report also says that the possibility of radical and fundamental elements penetrating into this business cannot be ruled out. The fake currency racket’s current exchange rate is three to five lakh valued notes for original one lakh rupees.
Purohit was trying to get his intelligence reports to the superiors for his arguments in the ‘Hindu Terror’ alleged cases to prove his genuineness working as an Army Intelligence Officer. He got this report after Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar allowed the Army Headquarters to provide a copy.
