Kathmandu, Sept 4 (ANI): Nepal's former Crown Prince Paras Shah has refuted the Indian media reports that suggest that he is involved in a Fake Indian Currency Note (FICN) racket.
In a press statement, Paras, who was in Singapore recently, has condemned the reports as' false and malicious.'
Paras said he was seriously concerned about these fictitious reports that were published in Indian media against him, which was 'spreading illusions inside the minds of Nepali people. "As a common Nepali citizen, I am doing my responsibilities and accountability. Taking the advantage of the fluid political situation inside here, I strongly condemn such stories well planted from a foreign land," he added.
"All those media reports were well-orchestrated and condemnable propaganda directed against the sovereign people of Nepal from a foreign land," he said in the statement.
Nepali nationals who were nabbed by the Anti Terror Squad of Madhya Pradesh in connection with a fake Indian currency racket revealed the involvement of Paras and India's most wanted terrorist Dawood Ibrahim.
They further revealed that Yunus Ansari, the son of a minister, was the conduit between Paras and Dawood, who between them have been pushing in crores of fake Indian currency into India.
According to sources, Dawood manages the printing and manufacture of the fake currency, while Paras is responsible for its transit from other countries into Nepal and India.
Paras reportedly used his influential position to ensure the money reached the designated transit points on the India-Nepal border without a hitch. (ANI)
