Abdul Karim Telgi, the main accused in the fake judicial stamp paper case, has been sentenced to seven years imprisonment each in two separate cases by a local court in Churu, Rajasthan.
Chief Judicial Magistrate Urmila Verma on Thursday sentenced Telgi to seven years imprisonment in the multi-crore stamp paper case and also imposed a fine of Rs 50,000. Telgi was accused of being the mastermind behind a multi-crore stamp paper case in 1995.
In another case, Telgi was found guilty of issuing fake passports to labourers in 1994, for which the court awarded him another seven years of imprisonment and a fine of Rs 50,000. Telgi was brought to Charu from Bengaluru jail and has been lodged in judicial custody.
However, it was not clear whether the two terms will run concurrently.
