Cops busted a fake passbooks racket and arrested 15 persons of the gang in Anantapur. Over 17,000 fake passbooks, computers, printers, laptops, stamps and a Mahendra van were seized. The modus operandi was to use these fake pass books in taking loans, utilising subsidies, creating NOCs and for several other financial frauds. Some political leaders and cops too are suspected to have a hand.
