Hello Dear Lawyers,
Due to family issues, my sister in law (elder brother's wife) left home and filed 498a on my brother and other family memebrs including me. Her maternal uncle (with the support from this lady) filed a cheque bounce case on me claiming that I took handload of 10L and cheque has been given to repay the money.
Later we realized that my sister in law took the cheque from our house and they filed a false case against me.
Currently we are undergoing the legal proceedings. They didnt produce any documentary evidence that I took the money from them. All they got is the cheque (it was a blank cheque signed by me and later they filled 9L and submitted to bank for clearance. as there were no funds - it was bounced back).
My lawyer is telling that it is up to the judge discretion since both the parties didnt produce any documentary proof. I am worrying that how can I prove innocence? It was a false case - since my sister in law family has muscle power and money, they have been troubing us. Any suggestions? If something goes wrong, I don't have any money to pay - we are lower middle class family.
