Only two weeks ago, the Vashi crime branch had seized pirated CDs worth Rs5 lakh. At that time the CDs seized included copies of new Hindi movies as well as pornographic CDs and it had prompted the arrest of two people from near Big Splash in sector 17 of Vashi.
At that time too, police inspector (crime) Rajendra Kadam had said that they had received information that the pirated CDs were being sold from a stall in sector 17, following which a team rushed to the spot and arrested the two accused.
