DCP Abidi explained that the gang operated on a 1:5 profit ratio which means for every 1 lakh rupees worth of fake notes, they earned 20,ooo rupees in return. The DCP also said that the fake notes were astonishingly similar to the real Indian currency. The gang members used to peddle these fake currency to the dealers for further circulation in the market. All of this was inspired by Shahid Kapoor starrer Farzi.

The gang members produced these fake notes or counterfeit currency on the easily available bond papers by using a simple printer.
