My Sisters husband has taken money from some of our relatives for sending them abroad, but concealed this fact from us (my family and my sister). When my sister cam to know about this she insisted that she will not go with him unless he clears all the dues, and decided to stay in our house. During this course of about 18 months my Jija had again taken money from some more people again without our knowledge. Even people from whom he has taken the money never consulted us before giving the money. Now can I or my family be convicted along with my jija for fradulently taking money from people as he was temporarily living in our house. Now my Jija has went back to Mumbai.
The burden of proof is on the prosecution in your case. But mind it government are taking very serious steps to eradicate falsely in this profession as well. The nature of crime is fraud, criminal breach of trust and contract. if you and your family has not been directly made any involvement in it and you have not made any interferance regarding this dela then you dont have to worry. But ignorance of law is no excuse. if you knew that your relative is fraudly taking money from people, you had an optioned to caution them. In case it seems grave chances that you will get an involvement in this case, hire a lawyer and take anticipatory bail. thats it!!!
