The police in Hyderabad and Cyberabad Police Commissionerate on Monday arrested 17 persons from different places and seized banned Turkish currency with a face value of Rs 450 crore.

The Cyberabad and Hyderabad police received tip-off that some unidentified persons had been attempting to exchange huge amounts of foreign currency. They promised foreign currency in exchange for smaller amounts of Indian currency.
