While BJP’s one of the main agenda is to drive away ‘black-money’ from the country which is why PM Modi chose to ban currencies overnight, Kerala Police seized fake currency notes and printing machines from the house of a BJP local leader at Sree Narayanapuram near Kodungallur in the district.
BJP leader Rakesh and his brother Rajesh have been detained in connection with the seizure even as the raids were on till the report was filed. As per reports, he seized notes amount to nearly Rs 1.35 lakh. The fake notes were of Rs 2000, Rs 500, Rs 50 and Rs 20 denominations.
As per the Police, raids were carried following intelligence inputs that Rajesh and Rakesh have become rich in a short period.
Reports indicated that they were indulging in illegal money lending operations as well. The raids were initiated as part of the operation “kubera” launched by the police against illegal money lending firms.
