Mumbai: Kingpin of the multi-crore fake
stamp paper case Abdul Karim Telgi has written a letter to the
special CBI court requesting it to expedite proceedings in all
the pending cases against him in Mumbai.

The letter comes after the prosecution moved an
application to defer judgement against Telgi till charges are
framed against a recently arrested accused Imam Chaudhary, who
was apprehended from the international airport here last
month.

"We had moved an application in the court seeking
deferment in the judgement till charges are framed against
Imam Chaudhary," Special CBI prosecutor Pradeep Gharat said.

Telgi, in his letter, also requested special CBI judge
Chitra Bedi to hear the full case before her transfer.

"The judge`s transfer is due next month but Telgi, in his
letter, has requested her to complete the proceedings of his
case before going," Gharat said.
