Beijing, July 12 - Police in China have found 271,000 fake ID records, all of which have been nullified, the ministry of public security said Saturday.
A total of 149 cases of counterfeiting and selling fake ID cards have been solved and 46 members of the police force have been punished for involvement, Xinhua cited the ministry as saying.
Cases of officials and Communist Party of China (CPC) members having two or more ID registrations should be reported to local CPC disciplinary and organisation authorities, the ministry said.
