The Afghan Intelligence, National Directorate of Security (NDS), said the four individuals were arrested as they were attempting to sale 446,000 Afghanis and 5,000 US Dollars in the city.

NDS further added that the individuals have been identified as Adam Khan son of Zadran, Abdul Karim famous as Hashmat son of Mohammad, Shaheen son of Sher Agha, and Abdul Bair son of Abdul Ghafar.

The detained individuals have confessed that they were selling counterfeit 1000 banknotes and 500 banknotes in the city before they were arrested.

This comes as at least five foreigners were arrested along with three million counterfeit Dollar and Euro currencies in capital Kabul late in the month of December in 2014.

NDS said the intelligence operatives also confiscated chemicals which are used to produce counterfeit currencies.

According to NDS the suspects were demanding up to $100,000 from the Afghan people to buy chemicals from Dubai and use them to produce counterfeit currencies in Kabul.
