The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of Andhra Pradesh has put up proclamations on the houses of five persons hailing from Krishnapur village under the Baishnabnagar police station in Malda who have been absconding after a court granted them bail in a case regarding peddling of fake Indian currency notes (FICN) in the southern state.

Acting on a tip-off, the team of the CID has been looking for the accused since the past 10 days, who were arrested and later released on bail at Vijayawada in 2011 with suspected fake notes of Rs 30000 from an area near a rail station under the Satyanarayapuram police station.

Mohammed Shafikul, Shanu Sheikh, Mohammed Morjam Ali, Shaikh Azad and Mohammed Akhtar Ali have been absconding since then and the team had reached here to nab them, it is learnt.

“We have been following the orders of the court and have been searching for the accused here. We however have failed in nabbing them. We have served proclamations on their houses and in the adjacent areas. The notification mentions about arresting them immediately,” CID Inspector, K Veera Swami, said.

According to the CID team, the five accused were arrested with 10 fake notes of 1000 denomination and 40 notes of 500 denomination. They were produced in the court and had been released on bail some days later. The group had been absconding since then.
