Crime Branch registers case against woman for forgery


Srinagar, Apr 5, CNS: Crime Branch Kashmir registered  a case  against Rifat Rashid for presenting a cheque  bearing NO.376997 dated 22.06.2017   at  J&K Bank Branch Unit

Hari-Singh High Street, Srinagar, along with pay-in-slip/transfer slip for transferring the  proceeds thereof  to her A/C No. SB-92541, the concerned official identified some correction in date and showing due prudence  the official  placed  the said  cheque  on holder.

Realizing the account has not been credited  to her account, the account holder Rifat Rashid  approached the branch unit on 05.07.2017  and pleaded that  she is an account holder  of the branch  unit  since long  and also endorsed  on the back of the cheque  “payment guaranteed”. Thereafter the cheque was honored.  On 18.07.2017  an official of  J&K Bank  Branch Unit Qasba Hyhama  informed the  Bank (HSHS Sgr) that one Ab. Hamid bearing A/C NO. 0135040100002002  approached the  Branch and  informed that he has not issued cheque baring NO.376997 to anybody.

The said  account holders as per a statement issued by Crime Branch approached the Hari-Singh High Street Branch in person and also submitted an application stating therein that he has not issued the said cheque to any body and that the actual/original leaf of the cheque is lying in cheque book. On minute perusal of cheque in question it appears that last digit of  cheque has been erased and same has been replaced by digit (7), thereby  accused Mst. Rifat Rashid   committed forgery and succeeded in transferring the said amount to her account in a fraudulent and dishonest manner.

Investigation of the case has been taken up which is in progress.
