A fake price control magistrates gang was busted in Lahore who was looting and fooling people in the name of ticketing and fining overcharging shopkeepers, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Saturday.

The fake magistrates were doing exactly the same things like raiding shopkeepers, checking the price lists and imposing fines with a difference that all the process from start to end was completely made up and fake.

These magistrates issued fake receipts from fake fine books. They even dared to install government number plates on the private vehicles they were using and act like they were the real ones. They mostly operated in Johar Town.

Citizens caught the fake magistrates and called the real ones and later the police arrested them.  

The police also seized their vehicle that was used in the fake raids and registered an FIR against the accused.
