When the petition filed by advocate Ajay K. Agarwal was mentioned before a three-Judge Bench comprising the Chief Justice, V.N. Khare, Justice S.B. Sinha and Justice A.R. Lakshmanan for early hearing of the matter, the Bench said it would come in the normal course.
The petitioner submitted that this was a case where the national security was at stake. Original dyes and machines had been used for printing the fake stamp papers and thousands of persons across all the States had been involved in the racket. A number of police officials, including senior police officers, were found to be involved, political leaders, Ministers, MLAs and others had come under a cloud and it had posed a great threat to the national security and integrity of the country. He said the mega scam had shaken the entire country.
The petitioner said the fake stamp papers were sold in the market through the scamster, Abdul Karim Telgi's distribution agents and the racket had the connivance of officials from the Nashik Security Press.
He wanted the apex court to monitor the investigation.
