The verdict said these cases related to a series of orchestrated fraudulent acts by which a staggeringly huge amount of public money was plundered after creating fake bills and other false documents, with the active participation or connivance of several high ups in the state administration and succeeded in "draining out Rs. 900 crores and odd". Stating that day-in and day-out sermons were preached listing out the evils of corruption and slogans with catch-words against the corruption, the judge said there were positive and constructive remedial measures and steps taken for its eradication by the agency concerned. "We have also seen that there is a constant debate throughout the Globe regarding the magnitude and multi-dimensional causes of corruption," he said. "But even then, omnipresent corruption with its tentacles poses a great threat to the welfare of the society and grows in menacing proportion."
The judge said, "An impression is also created by and large that corruption is an inevitable evil. It has been noticed in most of the corruption cases that flouting of the rules in disastrous manner have opened the windows for practicing corruption."
