A week after busting a factory manufacturing fake coins in the Bawana Industrial Area, Delhi Police has launched a hunt for two brothers, who are suspected to be the masterminds of such illegal manufacturing units in Delhi, Haryana and Rajasthan.
Sources said the duo apparently had no permanent residential addresses in Delhi, and probably lived out of a car and used international mobile SIMs for running their business.
On October 7, the Special Cell of Delhi Police had arrested two persons and sealed a coin making factory in Haryana’s Ambala.

This had come close on the heels of a raid by outer district police at the Bawana factory on October 2, where coins similar to the Ambala factory were found.
During investigation, it was found that the chain of fake coin manufacturing units in northern India was allegedly being led by the two brothers, both in their late thirties, said sources.
One Naresh, arrested after the October 2 raid, disclosed that the Bawana unit was being run by the two brothers for years from a rented room, the sources added.
On the October 7 raid, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Special Cell) Sanjeev Yadav said two persons, identified as Gulshan Kumar (58) and Sachin (35), were arrested near Nilothi village in outer Delhi.
“They told us that they visited Delhi from Hisar in 2014. Here, they met one of the brothers, who got them the raw material for making the fake coins,” said Yadav.
Gulshan and Sachin were running a fake coin making factory in Haryana’s Ambala from where counterfeit coins with a face value of Rs 3.57 lakh were recovered. Police also conducted raids in Rajasthan’s Churu from where they recovered coins with a face value of Rs 1.37 lakh.
Counterfeit coins with denomination of Rs 5 and Rs 10 cost Rs 2 to the illegal manufacturers.
Sources said Gulshan and Sachin were in contact with the brothers, who used to provide them raw materials.
