Apparently camouflaging under this business he is connected to a counterfeit network that make and distribute fake tyre tubes.

Based on details from the arrested, police further seized large quantity of packed but fake tyre tubes of brands like MRF and CEAT. Riding on the popularity and demand for such brands, it has been very easy for counterfeiters to dispose the duplicate products in the market.
