Court up­holds sen­tence in cheque bounce cases

Sunday Express - - INDIA -

A lo­cal court in Sri­na­gar has up­held a trial court judg­ment con­vict­ing a per­son in two sep­a­rate cheque bounce cases. The court or­dered that the per­son, who was con­victed by the trial court, be taken into cus­tody. While re­fer­ring to var­i­ous pro­vi­sions of laws, the judge held that the im­pugned judg­ment of con­vic­tion and sen­tence does not re­quire any in­ter­fer­ence. The con­victed per­son, a res­i­dent of Bem­ina area, had been handed a six-month sen­tence in the two cases. He was also asked to pay J13 lakh in com­pen­sa­tion. In July, a court had up­held the jail term awarded to an­other Sri­na­gar man in a cheque bounce case but de­creased the amount of com­pen­sa­tion.
