After Dumariaganj fake currency scam it's the Gonda case that is currently under the scanner.
A special team from RBI has recovered fake notes with face value of Rs 2,100 from a branch office of State Bank of India (SBI) in Gonda during its checking.
These fake notes were found at the Babhnan branch. The Branch Manager, Ramanuj Misra said, " Four fake notes in the denomination of Rs five hundred and one of Rs 100 have been recovered during the checking of over Rs fifty crore kept in the chest of the branch." An FIR has been registered in this regard.
Last month, an RBI team also seized fake notes worth Rs 4 crore from the currency chest of SBI's Dumariaganj branch.
The State Government had recommended the case to Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) recently.
CBI Joint Director (Delhi) Rajni Kant Mishra said, "We have dispatched the documents relating to the formalities of accepting the probe to the Government of India. The nod from the government is expected within a week and the investigation will begin thereafter."
The CBI team, which has been assigned the case, has the successful Bihar case up their sleeves where fake notes were supplied to agents across Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal.
Earlier the Special Investigation Team (SIT) of the Uttar Pradesh police arrested a canteen worker of the Dumariaganj branch of SBI in this regard recovering large stacks of fake currency notes.
