Telgi gets 7 years jail in petrol, diesel adulteration case
Mumbai: A special CBI court on Monday sentenced Abdul Karim Telgi, kingpin in multi-crore fake stamp paper racket, to seven years jail in connection with a petrol and diesel adulteration racket case.
With his conviction in this case, all the cases against Telgi in Maharashtra have been concluded.
"In December 2012, Telgi had pleaded guilty in this case. However, the court sentenced him to seven years today," said special public prosecutor Pradeep Gharat.
According to police, during the investigation of Telgi in the fake stamp paper scam of 2004, he revealed that he had a role to play in the petrol and diesel adulteration case.
"The adulterated petrol and diesel used to be supplied to all the petrol pumps in Maharashtra. The fuel was adulterated with naphtha," Gharat said.
According to him, there were 14 accused in this case including a company called Thane Polyorganics, while three are still absconding. All the accused are charged under the IPC and Essential Commodities Act.
The case against three others will continue, Gharat said.
