Agartala, Aug 18(Samay Live) Four tribals have been arrested by security forces from Naisinghpara in Kanchanpur sub-division of North Tripura district, bordering west Mizoram, with fake Indian currency.

The police today said that acting on a tip-off, a joint team of Assam Rifles and Tripura police raided the Naisinghpara camp of displaced Reangs, about 27 km from Kanchanpur police station, yesterday.

The joint team arrested four tribals with fake Indian currency of Rs 14,000 In denomination of Rs five hundred and a mobile set.

About 35,000 Reangs, who were displaced during several ethnic clashes with Mizos from western Mizoram since 1997, are now sheltered in six evacuee camps including the Naisinghpara.

The police said a racket on fake currency is active in the border areas of Tripura and Mizoram.
