The stamp paper scam has the Mumbai police running for cover.

A native of Belgaum in Karnataka, Abdul Karim Telgi, is suspected to be the kingpin of the racket, which involved printing and circulating duplicate stamps and stamp papers.

Senior policemen and politicians are suspected to have helped him expand his multi-crore business.

Already many policemen have been held in connection with the scam. But a lot more questions need to be answered.
