Many supporters of Narendra Modi had hailed his move to demonetise Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes because they beleives that it would cut down on money supply that support cross-border terrorism. But even as we struggle to stand in long queues to withdraw the new set of notes, fresh Rs 2000 notes have reached the hands of terrorists.
Earlier, there were reports that ever since demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes was announced, instances of stone pelting saw a sudden drop. Even Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar had backed these reports. BJP President Amit Shah had said that demonetisation had badly hit terror organisations.
According to a picture shared by a news agency terrorists have laid their hands on the new set of notes. A couple of Rs 2000 notes were recovered along with arms from terrorists who were gunned down today in Jammu and Kashmir’s Bandipora. Two militants were killed by the security forces int he Bandipora encounter.
Here’s the picture:

The gunmen barged into the Jammu and Kashmir Bank branch at Malpora in Chrar-e-Sharief and took away cash from the counters at gunpoint, a police official said.
