Here is a small automobile garage mechanic who has a service center and has become a victim of cheating. A bank manager was his regular customer. Once the mechanic asked the Bank Manager for a loan of 25000/-. The bank manager brought cash and gave him He took the mechanic's signatures on many documents along with the original house sale deed and other documents. The mechanic is not well versed in english, but signed all papers.
After many many months, the mechanic got a legal notice from another Bank, that he has stood as a guarantor for some body for 6 lacs and with interest it is 9 lacks. Then he went to the Bank Manager's house, who had taken his signature on papers. He had gone on transfer, the neighbours said. Then he went to a lawyer. The lawyer arranged for arbitration and though he had not signed as a guarantor to anybody, he has been fixed. Then the lawyer took him to civil courts and the court is also likely to take a decision that he has to pay as a guarantor.
Now, the question is whether there is a criminal remedy, if his signed papers have been misused by the old Bank Manager, who gave the papers to some others to use it as guarantee, even though it was given for his own use.
