Jhang police have claimed to have arrested members of a gang involved in preparation of fake registration books for stolen motorcycles.
Jhang District Police Officer (DPO) Akhtar Umar Lalika said that the police were tipped off about the place where the gang worked.
He said a team supervised by Sial Station House Officer Fayaz Cheema raided the place and arrested six men.
They were later identified as Muhammad Akram, Irfan, Abdul Qadeer, Abdul Hameed, Nasir Khand and Muhammad Aslam.
The DPO said that the men purchased motorcycles stolen from Jhang, Toba Tek Singh, Khanewal and Faisalabad districts for as little as Rs10,000 each.
They then sold the motorcycles at Rs40,000 to Rs50,000 after preparing fake registration books for them.
The DPO told The Express Tribune that the raiding team recovered 28 motorcycles from those arrested.
He said a large number of photocopies of national identity cards, fake number plates, 50 blank registration forms, 16 Excise and Taxation Department stamps, a computer, a printer and a scanner were also confiscated from the scene.
He said a team had been constituted to look for Zafar, the man who the arrested men bought motorcycles from.
