The Hush Post: The alertness of Panchkula Additional Sessions Judge Narender Sura led to the filing of an FIR against a person who had become a habitual fake guarantor in a number of cases.
On Monday, the judge got suspicious of a guarantor in a negotiable instruments case, Jai Narayan, a resident of Kharak Mangoli. On verifying the facts, it was revealed that he was habitual of standing surety and had done so for accused Rohit Gupta in a criminal case. He admitted later that he had stood surety in various other cases too.
After the incident, the judge directed the Panchkula police to lodge an FIR. The accused has been arrested.
Talking to a national daily, SHO of Sector 5 police station, Karamvir, said they produced the accused before a court which remanded him in two-day police custody.
During the investigation, two more names came up before the police, Basu Ram and Pardeep, who had stood fake sureties in NDPS cases.
The judge in his order stated, “This court is of the view that it is a fit case for the registration of an FIR against the applicants for making false deposition in the affidavit and it is clear that Jai Narayan is habitual of standing surety against a consideration. On verifying the record of other courts, three other cases have come into the knowledge of this court where he stood surety”.
In his order, the Judge further said, “This matter needs to be thoroughly investigated as courts are facing this problem daily. On the absence of the accused, whenever a notice is issued to the surety and identifier, reports are received that no such person is residing at the given address. On Monday, another case, titled “state vs Anubhav’, was listed before this court and in this case also, a report has been received that the surety and identifier are not residing at the address mentioned in the documents submitted by them at the time of submitting bonds”.
