Aurangabad, Maharashtra, Mar 28 (UNI) The Aurangabad Rural Police have arrested the kingpin behind the circulation of fake currency notes in Vaijapur taluka and have recovered a computer and a printer from his possession.

Following a tip off, the police raided the hideout of the kingpin, identified as Narendra Mule, alias Baba Nalguru, in Ratnagiri district and brought him here today. Police have also recovered fake currency worth Rs 17,000 in different denominations from his possession.

Mule had then disappeared and resurfaced in Ratnagiri district posing himself as a deeply religious man and a fortune teller, sources said.
