Brief : Mr A took a Loan of Rs 100 Crs using forged signatures of Mr B (owners of a 99 yrs leased property). Bank sent notice under 13(2)of SARFAESI Act.
Mr A lodges complaint and police registers case u/s 406,420,467,468,471 along with 120B.
Documents bearing Mr A's signature are referred to Police Handwriting Experts who gives their opinion that signatures are not of the complainant ( i.e. they are forged)
Bank is not cooperating with IO and are resisting to give documents relating to sanction of loan etc. using Sec 124 of Evidence Act. as many of their Officers will also be in trouble due to FIR.
Police as usual not contesting this resistance and is dormant.
My question is
Can the Bank use section 124 of evidence act and avoid giving documents to I.O. ( Police)?
How Police can get the related documents?
Can Police prosecute the Bank officers who sanctioned the loan under Prevention of Corruption Act ?
