On arriving at the bar, , located in Soi Diamond, Walking Street, police found Mr. Pankaj Sharma [25], an Indian National, with 11 one hundred-dollar bank notes. After checking the notes, police found 6 of them were fake. In Mr. Sharma’s wallet they found 100 Rupi and 3,000 baht which police confiscated as evidence.

The bar owner, Mrs.Boonyanuch Sanitkum [55], said the suspect had been in her bar with his friends two days earlier and offered to rent the bar but they failed to reach an agreement. On that night Mr. Pankaj Sharma had used US dollars and also had exchanged several one hundred-dollars bank notes for Thai baht and left the bar.

Mrs.Boonyanuch had found that one of the notes was fake so she had been planning to catch him on his following visit. On this night, Mr. Sharma came to the bar alone and had brought fake notes to exchange for Thai baht again at which point Mrs. Boonyanuch and her staff arrested him and found a further 6 fake bank notes in his pocket. They then contacted the police.

Mr. Sharma denied the accusations and claimed he didn’t know that the bank notes were fake. However, the police didn’t believe him and assumed he may be a member of a counterfeiting gang.

The suspect was taken into custody for further investigation.
