I had entered a partnership contract with a person running a small firm . An affidavit was asked by me that he was a sole proprietor and that no other partner existed and there are no undisclosed liabilities other than in accompanying balance sheet
Later it was found that existence of a partner was hidden by hime, against whom he took injunction not to interefere and then entered with me.
After FIR was filed he was convicted u/s 406,420 and 193 IPC. But session judge acquitted saying 193 not applicable as court did not complain about affifavit.
What is punishment for furnishing false afidavit to any body for any benefit or entering a contract. People keep giving affidavits to customs department, apssport offcie and others and various agencies.
What eaxctly is offnse and covered under which section of IPC.
I have been summoned being complainant
State appeal against acquittal is pending in high court and has come uo for hearing now
