Press Of Trust Of India 

Private snooping agents may be used to carry out special checks on violation of (IPRs) on official trademarks and brand merchandise of the (CWG) next year to avoid monetary loss to the tune of crores of rupees.

The organising committee of the Games has explored the possibility with the private detectives association.

The spies will garner information from around the national capital region where small industrial units and individuals are said to indulge in manufacturing of duplicate and fake logos, symbols, sporting gear, apparels and other goods bearing official holograms and symbols.

“Violation of trademark and proprietary insignia dents the monetary interests of the official partners and business houses who put in huge sums of money to obtain sponsorship rights of such events,” Chairman of the Association of Private Detectives and Investigators said.
