Many a time, cases u/s 138 N I Act, an application was filed in trial court having false statement that cheque handed over as a blank cheque, and it should be sent for FSL test, just to delay the proceedings, whereas the post dated cheques duly filled up by accused in his own handwriting and along with a signed letter of handing over cheques with cheques description just like date, amount ,cheque no. , the drawee bank name were given at the time of taking loan. Does this come in perjury as the application is not supported by any affidavit and there is no verification as in Affidavit?

Thank you for reply. If application is dismissed as no need of sending to FSL. Now if complainant got a report from Private Hand Writing Expert that the writing on the cheque and writing on the other papers submitted in the court by the accused at the time of taking bail i.e. Bail bond are of the said person, can accused be prosecuted for perjury as well as/or for any other offence, as accused application for sending the cheque is neither supported by affidavit nor there is any verification. Thus main question and confuse of me is, though the application in criminal trial presented and decided, yet they are not supported by affidavit or any verification, yet if there is any false statement in the application, can the accused be prosecuted for perjury offence?Please guide clearly.
