After receiving a tip-off from an agency, in-charge of keeping a tab on piracy of the product, a leading Electronic Company with us, raided the base and found bulbs worth Rs. 2 Lacs. The Kandvali Police Station arrested the accused.
The unmarked bulbs of low quality are imported from Hyderabad and then they are stamped here with labels of big companies and then passed off as genuine bulbs.
Police Inspector associated with the raid remarked, “Unmarked bulbs are of low quality and this is a big racket in India”
