A first information report (FIR) has been registered against the accused and he is currently in police remand while further investigations are ongoing.

Commenting on the raid, IMI deputy chief coordinator J N Saxena said, "This is an excellent piece of police work on information provided by IMI, and the police is now pursuing leads for facilitating further investigations. It is IMI's constant endeavour to eradicate piracy, and together with judicial bodies and governmental agencies, we hope to one day seal all such nefarious establishments and bring to justice those who are guilty".

Elaborating further, IMI president VJ Lazarus added, "IMI has been working for the last ten years to control piracy and in the last four months itself, it has conducted raids on two of Delhi's biggest CD plants- Deepak Arts CD plant and Dugobs Replication Company."

Deepak Arts CD plant was raided in July 2006 where goods worth over Rs 300 million were seized. The accused Deepak Malhotra, was arrested and placed in judicial custody for more than 40 days.

IMI has constantly been demanding an optical disc law to be created in India to monitor CD plants. However, there has not been much success on this issue so far, adds the release.
