Kanpur: One person was arrested for
allegedly making fake readymade garments in a branded
company`s name, police said on Friday.

Sohail was arrested from Benajhabar locality yesterday
evening after police raided his father`s house and recovered
machines, packaging material, labels of the brand and
duplicate clothes.

Balram Narula, the owner of the brand, was called on the
spot to identify the confiscated material.

"We knew that fake copies of our product are being made
in the city but we were not aware that it was being done at
such a large scale," Narula said.

Police is probing the possibility of an inter-state
racket in the case.
