Pursuant to the order of a court here, the Delhi Police have registered an FIR against five members of a family, including four women, for allegedly stealing documents from the court's records and forging the order of a magistrate.
The FIR was registered on the order of Metropolitan Magistrate Pawan Singh Rajawat.
It names north Delhi residents Parul Verma, Pooja Verma, their father Vijay Narain Verma and mother Isha Narain and a relative Rupali Verma as accused. The court had directed the police to register the FIR on a complaint of one Sameer Saxena, the estranged husband of Pooja Verma, alleging theft and forgery of judicial records.
The case dates back to an FIR registered against Saxena in 2009 under section 498A IPC (husband or relative of husband of a woman subjecting her to cruelty) on a complaint made by Pooja.
Sameer's counsel Rohit Nagpal had alleged that Pooja had annexed many forged bills with respect to 'stridhan' which is given to a woman at the time of marriage.
A complaint was made in this regard by Saxena before Metropolitan Magistrate Neeraj Gaur, who had directed the police to register an FIR for the offence of forgery on January 19, 2012. Pooja had moved a revision petition challenging this order.
His counsel said when Saxena was issued a notice about the revision petition, he realised that the accused had attached with her petition a copy of his complaint on which the magistrate Gaur had passed the order with regard to the FIR.
He had said the complaint was stolen from the court records by the accused persons and photocopied. The staff of the court had denied before the magistrate having supplied any document to the accused.
