you have not even indicated whether this is govt office or not and in which capacity you have to deal with the case.
Ms.Usha Kapoor (Expert) 11 May 2018
Please come out with full facts of the case.
P. Venu (Expert) 11 May 2018
Certainly, a criminal action lies.
However, there would be an authority or a person who checks and authenticates the entries in the cashbook. That person is equally liable, either for gross negligence or for collusion or for both.
