The incarcerated kingpin of the nation-wide multi-crore fake stamp paper scam Karim Telgi was on Tuesday granted permission by the Karnataka High Court to attend the marriage of his daughter which is to be held on Thursday in Bangalore.

Telgi had filed a petition before the High Court seeking interim bail for a month to be a part of his daughter’s wedding.

His petition was dismissed on Tuesday but the court gave Telgi permission to attend the marriage with police security.

A division bench comprising Justice Mohan M Shanthangoudar and Justice CR Kumaraswamy granted permission to Telgi to attend the wedding with police security from 6 am to 6 pm on Thursday.
