Pune: A special court here has sentenced
fake stamp paper scam accused Abdul Karim Telgi to 10 years of
rigorous imprisonment and also imposed a fine of Rs 9 lakh in
a case registered with Nashik police in 2000.

Telgi, who is facing 47 cases in connection with the
scam, pleaded guilty in the Nashik case through
video-conferencing on Friday from Bangalore where he is lodged
in a jail, his lawyer said on Saturday.
The kingpin of the multi-crore scam is already undergoing
a 13 years RI after his conviction in 2007 in a case filed by
Pune police.
The court had also sentenced Telgi to ten-year RI on June
13 in a case filed against him by Mulund police in Mumbai in
2005.
