Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Vidya Parkash also directed convict Naiya Relan to defray the expenses incurred by the probe agency in the trial.
On CBI's plea that fine may be imposed upon her it defraying the expenses incurred by the prosecution during the trial, the CMM directed Relan to pay another Rs 4 lakh.
Naiya Relan was involved in stealing and fraudulent refund of ten Indian Airlines manual tickets in 1999.
She voluntarily admitted that during October 1999 ten blank tickets were stolen by a co-accused and the same were filled in by her in fake name and thereafter, refunds were obtained on them.
"Accused Naiya Relan is convicted for the offences under section 120B IPC (criminal conspiracy), 380 (theft in a building), 467 (forgery of valuable security), 468 (forgery
for the purpose of cheating) and 471 (using a forged document as genuine) and substantive offences under section 467/468 IPC," the court said.
"Keeping in view the facts and circumstances of the case including the voluntary plea of guilt made by the convict and the fact that she has been facing trauma of trial for last ten years, the interest of justice would be met if the convict is sentenced to TRC and to pay fine of Rs 5 lakh.
