CD racket busted, more raids on anvil

Cuttack, Aug. 16: The Police Commissionerate has launched a major crackdown on a gang allegedly involved in the illegal business of manufacturing pirated CDs of popular Bollywood movies and X-rated films.

The personnel busted one racket on Sunday and arrested two persons.

The police have also zeroed in on a major network in the city in connection with this trade. The force is now gearing up for further raids.

“Working on a tip off, we managed to identify a piracy unit in the city. We have already busted one gang in Khatbin Sahi area. This one was, however, suspected to be a large-scale operation. Though we have netted two. However, a few members of the gang are suspected to be still operating in the vicinity. Investigations are on and we look ahead to crackdown the group soon,” inspector-in-charge of Lalbag police station Pradyumna Kumar Jena told The Telegraph today.

Jena said: “The (piracy) unit used to operate from a tiny room in a house. There was a computer with high speed drives and multi copier. The miscreants used to avail of these devices to manufacture thousands of pirated CDs and DVDs. However, apart from the pirated Bollywood movies, there were a number of CDs and DVDs of pornographic films seized.

On Sunday forenoon, a team from Lalbag police station led by Jena raided the house at Khatbin Sahi. The police seized a number of over 10,000 pirated discs including 9,000 odd X-rated CDs. Moreover, the personnel seized hundreds of blank discs, CD writers, multi copiers, CPU, master CDs of movies which were mostly pornographic.

It is stated to be the biggest ever seizure of its kind from a single place.

“We have arrested the two brothers – Deepak Singh (30) and Sanjay Singh (20) who ran the unit from their house. A case has been registered against them under different sections of the IPC,” Jena said. The pirated CDs were sent to the CD parlours in different parts across the city.

“The two brothers, arrested in connection with the seizures, apparently had a wider supply network spreading beyond the city. The accused had allegedly confessed to have suppled the pirated CDs to different parts of the state. They had also indicated sources from where they used to receive orders for the discs,” Jena said.

Earlier, during a raid in January 2008, a special squad from the Madhupatna police station seized nearly 5,000 pirated CDs along with computers and others electronic equipment from a house at the Shankarpur area.

In another tip off by the personnel of Malgodown police station, a large number of pirated CDs were seized from Rehman Square at the Jobra area.
