New Delhi: Bachpan Play School, the nation’s leading playschool with over 1100 franchisees, disclosed yet another raid in Delhi, this time in Mayur Vihar, where counterfeit Bachpan uniforms were confiscated.
The event took place earlier this week when the Delhi police executed a raid in Mayur Vihar, New Delhi, where the proprietor was arrested for breaching trademark and copyright regulations. According to the investigation, the proprietor operated the uniform business and was involved in passing off and copyright breaches. Previously, a similar operation was carried out in Agra, Uttar Pradesh, and the owner was detained for the same.
