Sunday Express - - CHENNAI -

TWO women who took colour pho­tos of `2,000 and `500 notes and man­aged to ex­change it in a med­i­cal shop at Amin­jikarai on Fri­day were ar­rested. The man in the phar­macy grew sus­pi­cious when Vanitha (34) of Saidapet, bought medicines for `200 and gave a `2,000 note which did not ap­pear to be gen­uine.

“Grow­ing sus­pi­cious, the man fol­lowed Vanitha and found her to be ex­chang­ing an­other `2,000 in an­other phar­macy,” a po­lice of­fi­cer said. He alerted Amin­jikarai po­lice who nabbed the woman.

Pre­lim­i­nary in­ves­ti­ga­tion re­vealed that she owned a small food stall at An­nana­gar. She had come in con­tact with an­other woman, Sathyalak­shmi from Ko­lathur, who was tak­ing colour pho­to­copies of cur­ren­cies notes and was giv­ing them to Vanitha to ex­change them for gen­uine cur­rency.

Po­lice seized the print­ing ma­chine and and fake notes with a to­tal face value of `34,000. The two were ar­rested and re­manded to ju­di­cial cus­tody.
