Gurugram: A case of cheating, copyright act and conspiracy has been registered against 7 booksellers of Sadar Bazar, a day after the Chief Minister’s Flying Squad and NCERT officials raided several book depots here, an official said on Sunday. The case was filed on the basis of a complaint filed by NCERT officials on Sunday.

The shops raided by the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) officials and the Chief Minister’s flying squad include Bansal Book Depot, Jain Book Depot, Saraswati Book Depot, etc.

Chief Minister’s Flying Squad Inspector Harish said: “The raids continued till late Saturday night. After that, on the statement of NCERT officials, a case has been registered against different book sellers under the Cheating and Copyright Act.”

During the investigation it was found that even though the books were being sold at the rate fixed by NCERT, the sellers were getting 50 percent profit on fake book material.

“Stalls are also set up by the same book sellers in the reputed schools of the city. The nexus angle between the school management and the book depot is also being probed,” said a police official.
