SBI’s Khargone currency chest in-charge PS Panwar told TOI, “Around 4 misprinted currency notes with one side blank, were received and replaced. We tried to ensure that the customers don’t have any trouble.”

Meanwhile, the matter has also been reported to RBI.

Similar, incident was witnessed in Khargone city when one Gajendra Singh of Mohammadpura, withdrew Rs 4500 from an ATM in New Radhavallabh Market. “One of the Rs 500 currency notes was misprinted,” he said.

Singh reported the matter to SBI branch manager Jitendra Verma, who assured him that the currency note will be replaced.

According to the bankers, a bundle of ‘misprinted, but genuine Rs 500 currency notes’ may have got into circulation. “It seems that a bundle might be carrying misprinted notes. It is not possible to check every currency note while filling the ATMS. We will replace all such genuine currency notes in case of misprints,” Panwar said.

Sources said the misprinted currency notes were of ‘D’ series – the alphabet mentioned in the currency notes in water mark, between the two sections of a serial number.

Dewas Bank Note Press officials denied that the currency could have been printed in their facility, claiming that only ‘E’ series currency notes are printed in Dewas.

Another case was reported in Sheopur district of Madhya Pradesh when farmers received newly printed Rs 2000 notes without the image of Mahatma Gandhi from a State Bank of India branch.

AAP workers detained

New Delhi, Feb 22: AAP minister Rajendra Pal Gautam was detained here on Thursday as he was moving towards Home Minister Rajnath Singh’s residence along with some party workers to protest against the “casteist remarks” made by Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash.

This came two days after the Aam Aadmi Party’s Ambedkar Nagar MLA Ajay Dutt filed a police complaint against Prakash for making the remarks during a meeting at Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s residence on Monday night.

A party official said the protest was also called against the “biased inquiry” done by the Delhi Police against their MLAs — Amanatullah Khan and Prakash Jarwal — who were taken into judicial custody on Wednesday for allegedly assaulting the Chief Secretary.

AAP minister Imran Hussain was manhandled at the Delhi Secretariat by a crowd protesting against the alleged assault and his Personal Secretary Himanshu Singh was beaten up, according to multiple video clips from the Secretariat.

The party complained that no action was taken against those who attacked Hussain and his aide.

The Chief Secretary on Tuesday alleged that he was beaten up by the two MLAs in the presence of Kejriwal at the Chief Minister’s residence on Monday night, where he had been called for an emergency meeting.
