T-Series conducts anti-piracy raid at Andheri railway station

MUMBAI: No one can deny that there are a couple of illegal stalls outside the Andheri railway station catering to pirated discs.

T-Series, acting on a tip-off, in association with the Intellectual Property Cell of the Economic Offence Wing, Mumbai Police, helped raid a stall at the Andheri railway station recently.

The raid, conducted under the supervision of Joint Commissioner of Police (crime branch) Rakesh Maria and DCP Enforcement Sheela Sahil, was headed by the anti-piracy cell of T-Series Vijay Kamble and his team.

The seized pirated discs included those of Wanted, Blue, Main Aurr Mrs Khanna, London Dreams as well as software and MP3 CDs. 

Six people who were caught red handed trading these discs were taken to police custody. The accused were booked under Sections 51, 52(A), 63, 68(A) of Copyright Act along with sections 292(2) A of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) for sale of obscene material and section 420 of IPC.

The seizure accounted for 1855 Hindi film discs, 2645 English film discs, 490 Marathi film discs, 2040 software discs, 1040 MP3s song CDs and 490 pornographic movie discs and the value of the seized materials was to the tune of Rs 0.4 million.

Said T-Series creative director Divya Khosla Kumar, "We have always been a serious player in this industry and to make music work among the masses. It is important that it makes money for the music companies who invest so much on songs and song picturisations.

"The current matter is subjudice and hence, we will not be able to comment on it."
