Spl court postpones quantum of sentence in Telgi case to Sep18
Bangalore: A Special Court Thursday postponed
to September 18, the pronouncement of quantum of sentence to
17 persons convicted in the multi-crore stamp paper scam,
including its kingpin Abdul Karim Telgi.
Special Public Prosecutor B R Nanjundiah today submitted
before the court that the "offence is not against any
particular individual, family or any firm but against the
state and the country. It is a case that has affected the
financial position of the country and this has to be kept in
mind while pronouncing the quantum of sentence".
The case must be a deterrent to all those who involve
themselves in such anti-national activities, he said.
The judge Chandrashekhar Patil then posted the
pronouncement of sentence on the 17 convicted to Sept 18.
The conviction of all 17 accused is with regard to a case
registered in Madiwala police station here in 2001.
Telgi has been convicted 46 cases across the country,
including seven in Bangalore.
