They have been identified as Layak Ahmed from Delhi, Yakub (30) and Lijanul Haque (21) from Moradabad and Guddu (24) from Bareilly, said senior police official Madhu Pudasaini.

The police have recovered 179,500 Euro, USD 2,900 and 1,330 Thai Bhat from them.

Those arrested have confessed that they have been involved in foreign currency racket in the past also.
