LAHORE: The Lahore police on Thursday filed a case against a cigarette manufacturing company involved in illegal production of cigarettes on the market and playing havoc with the health of people with substandard and dangerous products.

According to the details, a registered FIR is seeking action by the Islampura police station in Lahore for copyright infringement and other related legal provisions.

The report calls for action against the owner of the Indus Tobacco Company, Mardan for producing fake copies of the cigarette brand – Kisan King Size. The owners of companies involved in illicit trade include Abbas Khan, Nawaz and Bilal. FIR points out that Saleem Printing Press, owned by Farrukh Riaz and Kashif Aslam, located on Barkat Road, Sagian is printing fake labels while the tobacco companies mentioned above are involved in the production and supply of counterfeit cigarettes on the market.

The fake industry has damaged the reputation of National Tobacco Company Limited, whose all brands including registered Kisan King Size cigarettes. The company conducts business under land laws which make valuable contributions to the country’s economy.

On the other hand, the illegal tobacco trade not only disrupts the health of millions of people, but is also one of the reasons for suboptimal revenue collection and pressure on the local tobacco industry. According to reports, KP police have arrested the same person for alleged involvement in a Rs40 million fraud case in Mardan over a farmer’s complaint last year.

Farmers have stated that two years ago, two brothers, Bilal Khan and Abbas Khan, the owner of the Indus Tobocco company, bought them Rs40 million worth of tobacco from the issuance of a company voucher.
