The Bombay High Court allowed a former Assistant Police Inspector, convicted in the fake stamp paper scam involving Abdul Karim Telgi, to visit Canada for five days to attend son’s convocation.
A division bench of Justices B R Gavai and Shalini Phansalkar Joshi allowed K K Parmar, who has been sentenced to five years in jail and is out on bail, to visit Canada but asked him to submit details of the travel programme. The high court has restrained Parmar from visiting any other country and granted permission strictly for five days, including the time taken to travel to Canada and back.
Public Prosecutor Pradeep Gharat opposed the plea of Parmar, saying he had been convicted and should not be allowed to go abroad.
Parmar was convicted in 2007 and sentenced to five years jail for allegedly aiding and abetting Telgi in the scam.
Parmar had filed an appeal against his conviction and is currently on bail.
