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
"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.
