A 41-year-old Omani woman has been taken into custody by the Royal Oman Police (ROP) on charges of depositing forged 50 Omani riyal currency notes through an automated deposit machine of a commercial bank.
The Economic Branch of Criminal Investigation Department (EB CID) was informed by a commercial bank that fake notes of 50 riyal denomination were deposited through their automated machine. "The EB CID team swung into action and kept a close watch before catching the suspect red handed when she was trying to deposit fake notes again at a different machine in Muscat," A spokesperson for the ROP said.

P.S: I apologize for the long absence which seems to have been like forever. But the assembly was hectic on it's own so couldn't really free myself to post anything. Though I assure you that I'm back until something else manages to drown me and take me away from my dear scribblings.
P.S.S: The title is in Swahili which strictly means 'The Development of Women'. The word is usually used by Swahili men in a sarcastic manner whenever they get astounded by what women have done or accomplished.
