final order copy is :-(matter in nutshell is that my mother belongs to tribal community of HP and got eduction of 8th,10th from that district but father hails from obc of punjab. my parents gave us a ST certificate in 1983 and i got a job in EPFO on this base. on Enquiry, SDM wrote in 2006 that ST issued wrongly by them in 1983 and ST certificate can not be given to non- ST father's offspring. same view was expressed by DC of the area in a letter in 2007. CBI initiated enquiry after Delhi high court order in some case. CBI made final report u/s 420,471 only saying i used false/forged ST certificte. They got a circular of HP govt of the year 1986 in this regard but did not produce the circular of HP govt and Home Ministry,new delhi of 1975-77 in this regard. they also produced the issuance register of 1983 in which no entry found of my ST certificate. They sent handwriting expert the specimen signature of the then SDM of the year 2010 and not of the year 1983. Expert said no view can be taken on it. SDM has given statement that his signature are not genuine in the certificate but also given statement in trial court that he can not recall the circular of 1975-77 ! Supreme court view inCivil Appeal no. 654 of 2012[2012)3SCC400] is in my favour. Moreover, i used the certificate bonafidely as given by my parents. there is no witness/proof that i used the ST certificate knowing that it was false/forged. Then how can i be charged by section 420,471? mens rea is absent if i am not a part of conspiracy. we have filed a writ petition in HP high court in 2011 which isstill pending.) Now tell me what to do now?
