Mumbai: One of the accused in the Telgi multi-crore fake stamp paper scam on Saturday filed an application before a special CBI court seeking that the then revenue minister and former Maharashtra chief minister Vilasrao Deshmukh be made an accused in three cases.
Accused Ram Ratan Soni, in his application has sought
that Deshmukh, presently Union minister should be made an
accused in the fake stamp paper scam along with officers from
the Special Investigating Team (SIT) Sanjeev Bhole, Sanjay
Barve, Subodh Jaiswal and S S Puri.

Special judge Chitra Bedi has sought a reply from the
prosecution on July 23.

Soni in the application has said Deshmukh had "abused"
his position as the revenue minister and had taken "active
undue interest for getting the licence in favour of Telgi".

It further states that the SIT did not investigate the
alleged role of several government servants including police
officials, politicians and those using the fake stamps.
