A Delhi court has ordered to arrest a 45-year-old woman who forged a court order to release funds deposited as fixed deposit (FD) in a nationalised bank.
The woman had received the claim as compensation following an accident in which her husband was killed, and she was injured in 2006.
The Motor Accident Claims Tribunal (MACT) judge Kanwaljeet Arora filed a complaint in court of additional chief metropolitan magistrate, Dwarka stating that Maya Devi (45) had fabricated judicial documents of his court dated January 7, 2010. The court noted Maya in connivance with her accomplices.
“Maya Devi had also counterfeited the stamps purported to be of this court for forging the orders of the court,” said the judge.
Counsel for Maya denied these allegations stating she had not forged any judicial document. On March 3, 2006, Maya and her husband Vijender Singh met with an accident. Her husband succumbed to the injuries and she was hospitalised with minor injuries. The tribunal awarded a sum of Rs 18.85 lakh to Maya and her husband’s legal heirs. She received Rs 99,000 as compensation for her injuries. The court ordered Rs 50,000 to be kept in the form of fixed deposit in a nationalised bank for a period of three years, and no loan could be availed at it.
On January 4, 2011, Mukesh Yadav filed an application in court stating Maya had enchased the fixed deposits via forged court orders. The court summoned the branch head of Axis Bank, Najafgarh branch. The manager furnished the original fixed deposit documents along with a forged court order permitting Maya to get the fixed deposit amount released on premature date.
