New Delhi: The Pakistani smuggler who was caught by officials in China’s Guangzhou with fake Indian currencies numbering to Rs 2.5 million was first tracked through intelligence sharing and cooperation between India, China and Sri Lanka.

Sri Lankan Daily Ceylon reported that Faiz Muhammad was found with fake Indian currencies which were made in Pakistan. His arrest had been possible because India shared the intelligence with Colombo and Beijing.

China and India signed a bilateral security cooperation pact in November 2015 which entailed that the two countries would actively share intelligence on terrorists, groups and other suspicious movements and activities.

Not only in this case, the two neighbouring countries have been amicably sharing intelligence which has helped both the countries in operating against notorious elements in the society.

However, India and China’s relationship has stumbled on rocky terrain as China repeatedly played the moderator between India and Pakistan even after the Uri attack. Calls for boycott of Chinese products have been called in the market ahead of Diwali.
