Nagpur: Sakkardara police have booked two men on the charges of publishing duplicate books in the name of two reputed publication houses of Delhi. The accused also forged holograms of the two companies and sold the duplicate books as original ones. The two publication houses were put to the financial loss of Rs 8.36 lakh by the two conmen.

The two accused, Nitin Ashok Deshmukh (29), resident of Plot No. 68, Bhande Plot, Gawalipura and Rajesh Shravan Lanjewar, approached Sanyog Printing and Binding Works/Sanyog Binding Works, situated in Bhande Plot, and ordered printing of duplicate books in the name of reputed New Delhi-based publication houses — Laxmi Publication and Chand & Company. The two accused also forged holograms of the two publication houses to show the duplicate books as original ones. The duplicate books were later sold and the two publication houses were put to loss of Rs 8.36 lakh.
