The main accused in the fake judicial stamp case Abdul Karim Telgi has been sentenced to seven years imprisonment each in two separate cases by a local court here.
Chief Judicial Magistrate Urmila Verma on Thursday sentenced Telgi to seven years imprisonment in the multi-crore stamp case and also imposed a fine of Rs 50,000.
Telgi was accused of selling fake stamp papers which involved crores of rupees in 1995.
In another case, Telgi was found guilty for issuing fake passport to labourers in 1994 for which the court awarded him another seven years of imprisonment and a fine of Rs 50,000.
Telgi was brought here from Bangalore jail and has been lodged in judicial custody.
However, it was not clear whether the two cases would run concurrently.
