Over the last few months, the Tamil industry had been plagued by piracy, which resulted in heavy losses for several big-ticket films such as 24 and Manithan.
Thanks to the continuous efforts of the Cyber Cell department and members of Nadigar Sangam, the head of DVD piracy business in Chennai was nabbed in an operation on Wednesday. It turns out that the man was one of the lynchpins of the piracy business in the city and has been active in the business for the last five years.
Acting on a tip-off, members of Nadigar Sangam along with Cyber Cell department nabbed the leader after meticulous planning, and now intend on going after the entire network involved in the piracy business over the course of the next few weeks.
The Sangam has also advised all theatres in the city, especially multiplexes to beef up security because in most of the recent cases, films were pirated from the theatres in which they were being screened.
