New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Wednesday issued a notice to the Centre and CBI and sought their replies on a petition alleging that a fake stamp scam was "hushed up with ulterior motives" by the investigating agency.

A bench headed by Chief justice Dipak Misra asked the Centre and CBI to respond to the allegation that the fake stamp racket was led by Mumbai-based Hemant Dubey and was running alongside the one by Abdul Karim Telgi during 1998-2002.

"Two fake stamp scams were running parallel to each other between 1998 and 2002, one led by Abdul Karim Telgi and other by Hemant Dubey of Mumbai and his syndicate," the petitioner filed by an advocate Deepak Anand alleged.

He alleged CBI had hushed up the probe against Dubey for ulterior motives and there are documentary evidence to establish that extraneous consideration formed the basis to let him free.

The advocate charged Dubey was running a racket while working in a private company which was in the business of supplying stamps.

The petitioner has sought a direction for holding a fair, unbiased and impartial probe by Special Investigating Team.
