Hadapsar police station officials raided the road under a flyover in Hadapsar on Tuesday morning at 10 am and nabbed 3 men for involvement in piracy racket. The officials seized 7,000 DVDs of latest movies, including LONDON DREAMS and ALADIN that were being supplied openly on the road. They also found blue films and the setup was just 250 meters away from the police station.

All the 3 accused are professional vendors who work under some dealer. The police officials have started the investigation and inquiring about the main dealer. Officials are now tracking the DVD route to the supplier and customers in the piracy chain.

If proven guilty, the accused sellers will be booked under the stringent Maharashtra Prevention of Dangerous Activities (MPDA) Act. The act denies alleged offenders bail for the first three months. Movie pirates are now booked under Section 420 of the Indian Penal Code and the Copyright Act.
