The CBI special sessions court has sentenced Abdul Kareem Telgi to seven years rigorous imprisonment in the fake stamp paper scam.
Telgi and seven others are sentenced in the scam on Friday.
Besides Telgi, former Assistant Commissioner of Police Sangaram Singh has been sentenced to three years.
Earlier, the counsel for Abdul Kareem Telgi, presented the arguments and pleaded that the sentence be remitted in view of the fact that Telgi had been in judicial custody since 2001.
The fact that he has been ailing from various ailments and also that his wife had been bedridden should be considered, counsel pleaded.
