A special CBI court named IAS officer Radheshyam Mopalwar, former superintendent of stamps office, as an accused in the multi-crore fake stamp paper case involving Abdul Karim Telgi. Mopalwar has been summoned to court on July 27.
Special Judge C K Bedi issued the summons following an application filed by Telgi’s lawyer IA Bagaria asking for Mopalwar to be declared an accused.
Mopalwar has been named as an accused in three cases under various sections of the IPC dealing with cheating, fraud and forgery. Bagaria said he would file a similar application, asking for several other persons also to be declared accused. Telgi, in his confession, had also revealed the names of several politicians and police officers from the Special Investigative Team (SIT).
Telgi had reportedly entered the business of stamp vending with the help of Mopalwar. Mopalwar promised Telgi that he would help him with the client list of the general stamp office.
