In 2018 i had taken a loan from a friend for 1 lac rupees. Due to Covid I lost my job and was unable to return 75000 of 1 lac to my friend. I had given a blank cheque as surety.
In 2021 he filed a 138 NI Act charge against me for 2,30,000 after bouncing my cheque.
The writing on the cheque is not mine. Only the signature is mine. My friend has fabricated the story in the charge against me and I have recorded call evidence to prove my point that the case filed is fabricated.
My next hearing is on Jan 23, 2023. On that day I want to submit Evidence u/s 65B and also deposit the entire 230,000 to court but I want the proceedings to continue.
I would like to request the MM to grant me exemption from attendance as I am unwell and unable to travel to Mumbai on every date from Delhi.
I want to know if exemption can be granted.
And if the court will accept to continue proceedings if i deposit entire fabricated amount of court. (I won't compromise because I have evidence of fabrication).
I need the judge to listen to the recording which is between me and my friend with a duration of 7 mins.
I have a lawyer but she is dragging the case. Please suggest and if there is any lawyer from Mumbai, please drop your number.
