Telgi case: Special Court asks CBI to submit details in City Market case

Staff Reporter

Order comes after an accused questions the delay

BANGALORE: The Special Court trying the multi-crore stamp paper racket cases on Monday directed the Central Bureau of Investigation to give details of the progress made in preparing and submitting a final report in the case registered in the City Market police station.

Judge A.T. Munnoli passed the order after the former Assistant Commissioner of Police Sangram Singh, who is one of the accused in the case registered in the City Market police station, questioned the delay on the part of the CBI.

Appearing before the court, an emotionally charged Sangram Singh said that the CBI was yet to file the final report in the case, the investigation of which was taken over from STAMPIT in October 2004.

"The CBI cannot take such a long time to submit the final report under Section 173 (8) of the Criminal Procedure Code.

The delay has not only prevented me from getting bail but has also caused mental agony." When Mr. Munnoli sought an explanation, the CBI's investigation officer said that it was during the investigation of the case that he found involvement of a public servant in December 2004.

After five months he prepared the final report and sent it to the Delhi office.

The approval was received two months ago and the report had been sent to the State Government for seeking sanction to prosecute the public servant.

"We are awaiting the response from the Government," he said.

Mr. Munnoli then directed the investigation officer to submit complete details to the court by Wednesday.

Charges framed

Mr. Munnoli then framed charges against Abdul Kareem Telgi, the prime accused, and four others in a case registered in Peenya police station limits. In this case, the accused have been charged with using fake stamp papers for registration of a property of a company Sami Labs valued at Rs. 42 lakhs. The charges were framed against Irfan, Bhadruddin, Wazir Ahmed, Pradeep Kumar and Telgi.

The accused were charged with counterfeiting government stamp, possessing instruments or material for counterfeiting, selling counterfeit government stamp, possessing and using counterfeit government stamp and seal, cheating, forgery, and using counterfeit devices or marks for authenticating documents, under the provisions of Indian Penal Code.

The judge adjourned the case till January 4 for fixing the date of trial.
