Abdul Karim Telgi, convicted in the counterfeit stamp paper scam, gets special treatment in the Parappana Agrahara Central Jail in Bengaluru, Karnataka, a report by DIG (Prisons) D Roopa says. News agency ANI reported that Telgi gets body massage from three-four convicted prisoners ‘allotted’ to him.

In 2013, a City Armed Reserve (CAR) constable, who guarded Telgi, was arrested for smuggling mobile phones into the jail. Telgi is said to be infamous for using mobile phones in prison. During 2002-03, a special investigation team tapped a number of phones used by him to unearth the true extent of his fake stamp paper racket.

The racket, estimated to be worth billions of rupees, resulted in Telgi getting convicted and sentenced in 2007 to 30 years of rigorous imprisonment. The fake stamp paper, that he along with his agents used to produce, were allegedly sold to banks, insurance companies and brokerage firms.

The scathing report by the DIG (Prisons) also says that VK Sasikala, long-time aide to late chief minister J Jayalalithaa and convicted in the disproportionate assets case, paid bribe of Rs 2 crore to get special treatment. A kitchen functions just for her needs, it says.

    Muslims can get away with anything in India. Muslims divide India and still stay illegally in India. Muslims multiply like pigs illegally in India. Muslims Islamize Bollywood and show a jihadi religion as the religion of peace and Sufism and the Hindu religion which allowed them to come to India by being secular as bad religion. Muslims can wipe out minorites worldwide and still grow in India. Bbaangladesh Muslims come illegally to India and stay with illegal Muslims in India. Muslims will publish anything on any religion but if you talk about them they will create riots and burn your house. Muslims are openly doing live jihad. Muslims will kiII Amarnath Yatri and Hindus in return will pay for Muslims to fly repeat fly to Mecca. Muslim men will have mutlipe wives while all others including Muslim woman can have one spouse. This is secular India.

            Whether it Congress or BJP rules state,the dirty policemen are the same kind of breed. Come to Chennai and watch a policeman consuming 60/70 cups of tea without paying even a single paise and carry vegetables,fruits,biscuits,bread etc.to home without spending.They are after all doing their national duty. s are crticising the Armed Forces.
