Fake packaging unit busted

Staff Reporter

NEW DELHI: Four persons allegedly involved in printing and selling spurious packaging material for consumer goods in and outside the Capital have been arrested by the Economic Offences Wing (EOW) of the Delhi police. The police have seized fake packaging material worth Rs. 1 crore, apart from seizing machinery worth the same value.

An EOW team, comprising Sub-Inspectors Neeraj Kumar and Vikramjeet Singh and others, arrested the main accused Ajay Jain, a resident of Old Delhi, on Sunday. His agent, Deen Dayal Garg, was also subsequently arrested.

At his instance, the police carried out a raid at Maha Shakti Enterprises, a printing press unit where spurious packaging material was allegedly being printed, on GT Karnal Road in North-West Delhi and arrested its owner, Sunil Bansal and Jagdish Bansal.

The packaging material pertained to various renowned brands of shampoos, tea, engine oil, motorcycles, automobile spare parts, detergent powder and other things. The total cost of the recovered packaging material was estimated at Rs. 1 crore. The police also seized eight printing cylinders, lamination machine, cutting machine, rolls and pouches from the unit.

According to the police, the quality of the spurious packaging materials was so good that even the bar codes were copied exactly.

Ajay alias Ajju, the police said, used to find out about consumer products which were high on demand and used by middle and lower middle classes. He would order his associates to make packaging materials for such products which would later be supplied to various parties within the Capital and also outside.
