Acting on a tip-off, the intelligence unit of Border Security Force (BSF) arrested one person with fake currencies from Jogomaya area of Dhubri town on Friday.

The arrested youth has been identified as Jahirul Parmanik (40), a resident of Kalair Alga Part I under Sukchar police station of South Salmara – Mankachar district of Western Assam.

Fake currencies worth Rs 65,000 were recovered from him.
