34-year-old Tahir Sk alias Tahir Sekh, a resident of Malda, had been absconding.

He was involved in the conspiracy for procurement of fake Indian currency notes (FICN) having face value of about Rs 65 lakh through the Indo-Bangladesh international border at Daulatpur area under the limits of Baishnabnagar in Malda district in May last year, the NIA alleged in a statement.

Sekh was intercepted by a team of BSF deployed in the border area, it said.

"Earlier, investigation into the case revealed that the arrested accused person was a member of the FICN network involved in the transnational procurement of high quality FICNs through smuggling and distribution and pumping the same into the Indian economy," the NIA said.

He was arrested recently on the basis of a non-bailable warrant issued against him by a local court in Kolkata.

The accused has been sent to police remand till Saturday.
