Nashik court issues warrant against Telgi

February 12, 2004 14:11 IST

A local Nashik court on Thursday issued a fresh arrest warrant against Abdul Karim Telgi, prime accused in the multicrore stamp paper scam.

The court asked Bangalore's central jail authorities to produce him on March 31 in connection with two cases regarding the scam.

Earlier, the same court had issued a production warrant asking Bangalore authorities to produce Telgi on February 11, but they could not produce him on Wednesday. Hence the court has issued a fresh arrest warrant against Telgi, sources said.

The CBI has already arrested suspended general manager of Nashik Road-based India Security Press, Ganga Prakash, and suspended ISP works manager Mahendra Singh for helping Telgi and selling printing machines in scrap without dismantling.

Both the ISP officials are presently lodged in the central jail.

Another case is the theft of genuine stamp paper worth Rs 23 crore wherein CBI has arrested seven officials of Railway Protection Force (RPF).
