The charges were lodged in a special court in Mumbai 

NEW-DELHI: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has taken a significant step in the Thane fake currency case by filing a supplementary charge sheet against four individuals, one of whom is a designated terrorist. The charge sheet was submitted in a special court in Mumbai on Wednesday, encompassing relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code and the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act. This marks a crucial development in the investigation of the counterfeit currency racket.

The accused have been identified as "Uncle" alias Javed Patel alias Javed Chikna, Riyaz Shikilkar, Mohammad Fayaz Shikilkar, and Nasir Chaudhary, all residents of Mumbai. Notably, charges have also been leveled against Fayaz under the Arms Act, indicating the gravity of the charges and the extent of the investigation. The Thane police had initially filed a chargesheet against three of the accused in April last year, following the seizure of 149 high-quality counterfeit Indian notes of Rs 2,000 from Riyaz Shikilkar. Subsequently, the NIA took over the investigation.
