According to details, a local court in Karachi found two women guilty of using fake notes on the People’s Bus service. Furthermore, the court has directed the women to be transferred to the custody of the probation officer.

The Additional District and Sessions Court sentenced the two women to one year in prison each. However, they were ordered to be released upon providing a surety of Rs 10,000 each.
