If a person puts his signatures on a document, and the document is filled by other part without his notice to create a bank account and withdraw the money, will this comes under the act of forgery? What will be the punishment for the person? Also can the bank be sued?
First of your query is not clear. As I understood that you have handed over the blank cheque bearing your signature and that person has misused the cheque. Burdern is upon you to prove that you had no legal debt due towards him. Moreover there is settled proposition of law that you have handed over INCHOATE INSTRUMENT KNOWINGLY. NOW YOU CANNOT BEAT THE BUSHES. Please specifically ask the query with clear facts so that you can get proper advice.
Please feel free to contact me.
