Two youths were booked on the charge of circulating photocopies of the new Rs 2,000 note in Mahabubabad district of Telangana, police said on Monday.

According to Mahabubabad Rural Circle Inspector Krishna Reddy, a youth, who runs a colour photocopy shop in the district, took around four copies of the new Rs 2,000 notes. He gave a photocopy to one Pradip asking him to exchange the same or purchase something with it in the market.

"As per preliminary investigation, the youth who was running the photocopy centre allegedly told Pradip that they can earn easy money by 'spending’ the copies of the new Rs 2,000 notes," the inspector said.

Accordingly, on Sunday, Pradip took his relative's bike and went to a petrol pump and filled petrol worth Rs 500 and gave the colour copy of the new Rs 2,000 note.

The staff of the petrol station informed the police.

The police officer said they are questioning Pradip and have also launched efforts to nab the photocopy centre owner, who is absconding.
