New Delhi, June 23
Even as the CBI arrested two more persons allegedly involved in the fake stamp paper racket in the city, a Delhi court directed the agency to take Abdul Karim Telgi, the kingpin of the racket, back to the Yerwada jail in Pune.

Telgi, who was brought from Pune a fortnight ago, will be produced before a special MCOCA court in Pune on June 25, directed Duty Metropolitan Magistrate S K Sharma.

However, the Delhi court also remanded Telgi in judicial custody till July 7 in the case of recovery of fake stamp papers amounting to Rs 220 crore from here almost two years ago.

Meanwhile, the CBI arrested Ramnik Kanwar and Dheeraj Kanwar from their Connaught Place office here last night following an interrogation of Telgi and the other accused. The CBI, in its FIR against the duo, has alleged that they were running a front company for Telgi.

It was pointed out that the two were accomplices of Telgi operating in Delhi. In connivance with Telgi, they had supplied counterfeit government stamps amounting to crores to several multinational companies, banks and other organisations in Delhi and adjoining areas of Noida and Gurgaon.

The two had a number of bank accounts in the name of Capital Services here, where the sales proceeds of fake stamps were credited and later on the amount was withdrawn and given to Telgi.

The case was initially registered by the Delhi police, which had found that fake stamps amounting to Rs 62 lakh were recovered from the office of Capital Services at Connaught Place, and also from a government flat in South Delhi. The police had arrested four accused, Sohail Khan, Mansoor Ahmed, Wasim Shah and Deepak Bhosle, and chargesheeted them subsequently.
