The main accused in the multi-crore fake stamp paper racket, Abdul Karim Telgi and two others have sought permission from the CBI court in Indore to appear before it through video-conferencing facility.

Besides Telgi, the two other accused in the case, Sohail Khan and Shabbir Sheikh sought the permission from CBI Special Judge RK Joshi to record their statement in the case through video-conferencing.

Following the request, the court asked them to submit their plea along with affidavits, defence counsel KL Jain told reporters on Friday.

While Telgi and Khan are currently lodged in a Pune Jail, Sheikh is imprisoned in a jail in Bangalore.

They informed the court that they had recorded their statements in the same cases through the video-conferencing facility earlier also.

The court has fixed October 7 as the next date of hearing in the case during which the statement of the trio will be recorded.
