HYDERABAD: Even as the Telangana industries department lodged a complaint against the AP government about plagiarism, the cyber crime police registered a case against the website developers under Copyrights Act.

Cyber crime inspector Chand Basha said following a complaint by the joint director, industries, Suresh, they  registered a case under Copyright Act against the website designers and are investigating.

According to sources, the cyber police took the complaint and informed the industries department officials that they would establish the case and file a case soon.

The industries officials wrote a letter to the DIPP on the issue on Monday and also informed the same to the officials concerned in the central government.

"A lot of injustice was done to Telangana in the last year's EoDB rankings. We have been in touch with the World Bank and DIPP officials for the last one year and providing all the relevant information to them. We are expecting good rank this time. But, the unethical practice of AP has shocked us," an official said.

IT minister of Andhra Pradesh Palle Raghunath Reddy, chief secretary SP Tucker and communication advisor Parakala Prabhakar could not be reached for  reaction to the TS government filing a case against the AP government.
