The special CBI court here has framed charges in two cases against Abdul Karim Telgi, prime accused in multi-crore fake stamp-paper racket.
Judge UD Salvi on Saturday framed the charges against Telgi and nine others, including two former police officers, in the cases registered at Cuffe Parade and Colaba police stations.
Both the cases involve selling of fake stamp papers. The transactions in these cases amount to over Rs 20 lakh, special public prosecutor Pradip Gharat said.
The charges framed include that of making/selling counterfeit government stamps and forgery and cheating among others, police said.
KK Parmar and AB Sonvalkar, both of whom were assistant inspector of police, are facing charges of preparing incorrect record and intentional omission and are accused of failing to arrest Telgi when his arrest was due and letting him abscond.
Meanwhile, another trial against Telgi, in which offence was registered at MRM Marg police station in the city, is drawing to close, said Gharat.
"Arguments of defence are currently going on and we are hoping for judgement by December-end," he said.
