A special court of the National Investigation Agency (NIA) in Bengaluru has sentenced three persons to six years imprisonment for possessing fake Indian currency notes.

The trio was sentenced on December 1.

The trial against four others in the case, including the one who is still at large, would continue, NIA claims.

The matter dates back to August 7, 2018, when a case was registered against the four arrested with the fake currency notes with a face value of Rs 6.84 lakh in the denomination of Rs 2,000 at Madanayakanahalli in Bengaluru.

The four convicts were Mohammed Sajjad Ali, M G Raju, Gangadhar Ramappa Kolkar and Vanitha.
