Among those who reportedly helped Telgi were several politicians, policemen and bureaucrats.

Two MLAs - Anil Gote (Dhule, Maharashtra) and Krishna Yadav (Himayat Nagar, Andhra Pradesh) - have been arrested and charged under the Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act.

Apparently, Gote (in pic), helped Telgi get a stamp vendor's licence using a recommendation from former Maharashtra chief minister Vilasrao Deshmukh.

Yadav, it is believed, demanded Rs 2crore to protect his illegal business.
