Telgi's last wish: properties be used for country's benefit

Pune, PTI: Shahida, the wife of fake stamp-paper scam mastermind Abdul Karim Telgi, has approached court, for his benami properties be seized and used for the country's benefit "as per his last wish".

Telgi, convicted in the multi-crore scam, died at a hospital in Bengaluru on October 26 after a prolonged illness.

Shahida Telgi's lawyer Milind Pawar said, "Shahida in her application has mentioned that Telgi had the last wish that the properties he bought from the money earned through the scam should be seized by the government and used for the benefit of the nation. She has given a list of properties which Telgi had bought in the name of his relatives that were not seized by the investigating agencies."

As per the list provided to the special Maharashtra Control Of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) court, there are seven properties in Belgam and two in Bijapur, Karnataka.

The application is likely to come up for hearing on February 3, 2018.
