CHENNAI: The Central Crime Branch’s Video Piracy Wing on Monday arrested a man wanted for making and selling pirated DVDs and seized nearly 1600 DVDs of new Tamil, English and porn movies from his place of operation in Kolathur.

Police said, Nalla Ibrahim was picked up during raids in Perambur, Thiru Vi Ka Nagar and Kolathur by the Video Piracy Wing-CCB on Sunday. Investigation led the sleuths to a rented house in Jeyanthi Nagar, Kolathur, where they seized 1590 DVDs of all types, including those of new Tamil movies like Sandi Veeran, Vandha Mala, Idhu Enna Maayam and Sakalakala Vallavan. The cache also included pirated DVDs of Eglish movies and collections of porn clips. The DVDs were being distributed in the regular hubs of the pirated DVD market in Burma Bazaar, Perambur and Ayanavaram with the basic ripping and burning operations at the Kolathur base. Four writing machines were also seized.

Operations against pirated DVDs have been intensified with constant sweeps to curb the menace, said a police statement.

The police have seized 30,000 DVDs worth Rs 10 lakh in March after the arrest of P K Ravichandran, wanted for DVD piracy for over two years.
