Read Order- Vishal v. State Of Haryana
Chandigarh, September 21, 2021: The Punjab and Haryana High Court has dismissed a petition for grant of anticipatory bail, filed by the petitioner, accused of forging E-Bill in respect of his vehicle.
The case pertains to an FIR registered under Section 420, IPC (Sections 467, 468, 471 IPC added later on) at Police Station Naraingarh, District Ambala.
The allegation against the petitioner, who is owner of M/s J.M.S. Trading Company, was that he forged E-Bill in respect of his vehicle. In place of 18 metric tonnes, he inserted 40 metric tonnes. He thereby caused loss to State exchequer by giving wrong information.
The petitioner’s counsel mainly contended that for carrying more weight than the permissible limit, departmental action has already been taken and he has deposited the described fine of Rs.2 lakhs.
While holding that no ground to grant anticipatory bail to petitioner has been made out, the Bench of Justice Harinder Singh Sidhu was of the opinion that the allegation against petitioner has not only been causing loss to State exchequer but also the the offence of committing forgery in E-Bill is serious.
