Siddharthnagar, Aug 12 (UNI) Uttar Pradesh police has started the initial process to book suspended State Bank of India (SBI) Dumariyaganj chest cashier Sudhakar Tripathi and co-accused Abid under the Gangster Act.

The accused were brought to Lucknow yesterday by the Special Investigation Team (SIT) after transit remand from Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM) court here.

Meanwhile, an official of a Central Intelligence Agency today told UNI that the possibilty of the phoney notes being printed from Bangladesh were high.
