Another Sri Lankan arrested in Indian terror probe

arrest   Two persons who allegedly supplied fake Indian currency notes (FICN) to terror suspect Zakir Hussain, a Sri Lankan national, were arrested here on Thursday night.

Police sources said a special team probing the source of FICN seized from Hussain when he was arrested three days ago on a specific input and apprehended Mohamed Salim, 39, of T. Nagar and Sivabalan, 45, a Sri Lankan national, of Ashok Nagar. Fake currency notes with a face value of Rs. 2.5 lakh were seized from their premises.

The duo confessed to having supplied the FICN to Hussain, but claimed to have no knowledge of his activities in India. A verification of their antecedents revealed that Salim was already arrested in connection with a FICN case while Sivabalan was accused in a narcotics offence.

They allegedly sourced the FICN from Malda in West Bengal. (The Hindu)
