Court upholds sentence in cheque bounce cases
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.
