A city court has ordered registration of a criminal case against a woman who forged judicial records in the custody case of child.
A metropolitan magistrate at Tis Hazari courts observed that the woman intended to gain mileage over her husband in her domestic violence cases along with her child custody case.
Laviral (name changed) and Sheila (name changed) got married in March 2007. Gagan Preet Singh and Karan Bir Singh, counsel for Laviral, told the court, “Sheila in connivance and conspiracy with unknown persons had prepared a false and forged document that is a written statement of his petition under Section 9 of Hindu Marriage Act and in her reply to the petition seeking custody of child.”
The court noted that Sheila in her reply to a case following the custody of the couple’s two-year-old son filed an affidavit with forged signatures and stamp of an oath commissioner.
“The investigating officer did not notice the forged signatures and stamps and processed the documents during the case hearing,” said the counsel for Laviral.
According to the action taken report of station house officer of Subzi Mandi police station, it was revealed that Sheila
claimed that the documents were sent to her at residence in Jhansi but the place of verification and signature on them mentioned the place as Delhi.
The court noted that facts and circumstances of the case and the statement of Sheila recorded during inquiry revealed committing of a cognizable offence by the accused and unknown persons.
