Noida: The police have busted a factory which was manufacturing counterfeit products of household items like Harpic toilet cleaner, disinfectant Dettol, and Surf Excel washing powder among others in Noida.
The police seized hundreds of such packaged items which resembled original products. Two persons, who were identified as owners of the factory, were charged. They were operating secretly from a house.
“The racket was unearthed following a tip-off from Haryana about this company operating illegally and manufacturing counterfeit products of branded items from a house near Sector 81 metro station,” a police official said.
“When a police team reached the spot on Thursday night, it found labourers loading a truck with similar products. When probed, they told the team that were hired for daily wage labour and had no clue about the factory's works,” the spokesperson said.
An FIR has been lodged against owners under the Copy Right Act.
