The proscribed Revolutionary People’s Front (RPF) on Monday clarified in connection with reports of one Soibam Ronaldo alias Abungo from Soibam Leikai being arrested with fake currencies that the group is not involved in any work of counterfeiting currencies.

In a release issued by its assistant secretary of publicity Bangkim, RPF stated that on June 1, the RO of RPF finance department approached the owner of Mamta Electronics in Thangal Bazar, Jai Singh Jain to donate money for the cause of the self-determination movement. The owner agreed to assist the organisation with a sum of Rs 50,000, it stated.  When Soibam Ronaldo, who extends help to the organisation, went to collect the money, it turned out that the money was all fake Rs 500 notes, RPF stated.

Therefore, RPF has nothing to do with those fake currencies, it stated. It was a set up by Jai Singh Jain by working in hand with some conspirators to defame RPF, it added.  The incident proves that many non locals coming to Manipur are bringing in such fake currencies and making huge profits in the state. Therefore, those involved in doing business with non Manipuris are hereby cautioned to remain vigilant and look out for such fake notes, it added
