U/s.138 NI Act account closed

(Querist) 09 September 2009 This query is : Resolved 
i am appearing on behalf of the complanant
1) the accused admitting his liability sent an account payee cheque for Rs.45,379/- bearing No.197572, dated 11-10-2007 in favour of our company drawn on Andhra Bank, Chintalapudi and represented that he would have sufficient funds in his account and cheque would be honoured. Believing the said representation, the complainant accepted and presented the cheque in its account at Canara Bank, Inniespeta, Rajahmundry for collection. It is submitted that surprisingly, the said cheque was returned from the accused Banker as unpaid along with return memo dated 15-10-2007 for the reason No.19 account closed to the complainant’s Banker who in turn informed the return of cheque to the complainant on 18-10-2007. It is further submitted that the accused got issued the above cheque to the complainant intentionally and knowing full well as to close of account and that cheque would be dishonoured for that reason and thereby cheated our company.

Accused Banker enter into witness box and state that the accused did not return the cheque book to them after closing the account

The accused person had full knowledge prior to the issuance of his cheque that he has already closed his account and despite of that he issued the cheque for meeting his liability. The fate of Cheque was already known to him so accused has surely committed an offence punishable under the provisions of 138 of NI Act. There are numerous citations on this point. If required, plz contact me at my cell no. 09416058227.riven
