    Their plan was to sell the 32 smart TVs they had purchased in Hyderabad at a higher price by attaching fake Sony emblems, Sony QR codes, and star ratings to the displays. They rented a residence in Edulapuram and even installed software on the TVs to display Sony welcome messages when turned on. They marketed these TVs for Rs. 15,000 to Rs. 20,000, falsely claiming that they were obtained from the Army Canteen Stores Department (CSD).

    Saddam, Asif, and Anus Khan, the three adult defendants, were placed in judicial custody. The two underage offenders were presented before the Juvenile Court. The accused were found in possession of Rs. 2.9 lakh in cash, 32 43-inch TVs, a car, four motorbikes, pen drives, mobile phones, an Army canteen card, counterfeit stickers, and logos.
