Madhya Pradesh: Four school kids in Madhya Pradesh cheated a shopkeeper by giving him a photocopied note of Rs 2000 denomination.
The children, who were on their way to school, purchased milk and toffees worth Rs 200 and took Rs 1,800 change from the shopkeeper, reported India Times.
Gopalkrishna Yadav, who owns a milk parlour, became suspicious and shared the details with his son and both went to the nearest bank branch to check whether the note was original or not.
The bank officials confirmed that it was a coloured photocopy of the original currency note.
Yadav immediately lodged a complaint with the Kotwali police.
“We have taken up the matter for investigation. No case was registered as legally, one requires at least 5 fake currency notes to proceed with a case of counterfeiting,” police said.
