Telgi convicted in multiple cases

February 03, 2009 02:32 IST

A Mumbai [Images] court on Monday convicted and sentenced Abdul Karim Telgi, accused of running a fake stamp paper racket running into crore of rupees, to imprisonment in nine cases after he had pleaded guilty to all of them.

Telgi, who faces multiple prison terms in other cases and is lodged in Yerawada jail in Pune, pleaded guilty in eight cases related to fake stamp and one case relates to a fake passport found in his possession.

Six of the cases were investigated by the police and three others by CBI. Special CBI judge Chitra Bedi awarded Telgi a sentence of five years rigorous imprisonment in each of the cases in which he pleaded guilty.
