A special CBI court on Friday made Radheshyam Mopalwar, former Superintendent of Stamps, an accused in the multi-crore fake stamp paper scam along with the kingpin Abdul Karim Telgi and has sent him summons directing him to remain present before the court on July 27.

Special CBI Judge Chitra Bedi today issued the summons following an application filed by Telgi's lawyer I A Bagaria seeking for Mopalwar to be declared as an accused in the case.

"We filed the application after Telgi in his confessional statement revealed that Mopalwar, who was the then Superintendent of the General Stamps office, was also involved in the fake stamp paper scam," Bagaria said.

The court today accepted the application and has declared Mopalwar as accused in three cases under various Sections of Indian Penal Code (IPC) like cheating, fraud and forgery.

Bagaria also said that a similar application would be filed again seeking for several other persons to also be declared as accused in the case.

"Telgi in his confession had also revealed the names of several politicians and police officers from the Special Investigative Team (SIT)," he said.
