Recently the heirs of dad's ex-partner came with a fradualant document claiming they gave us 22 lakh rupess.The whole body of the message was not written neither by my dad nor his partner.But somehow they put dad's signature.Although i can assure its fraud,bt how to prove it.the signature is identified by dad that its his.Bt its forged.
There are some professionals criminal who can forged signatures even better than the original author of such signature, in such circumstances the original author of the signature can not even deny the signature that it is not his signature.But if your dad says its forged than do as what Brman has suggested.
Where is the document? Is it a receipt/pronote/agreement? Does it say that the money was given by cheque? 22 lakhs can't be paid in cash. You can complain to the Income Tax Department also that the party had no capacity to make such a large payment and is not reflected in its books of account.
First of all, you father can lodge a police complaint giving all the details. Delaying matters would not be in your interest.
A lady assessee's income tax return was verified by her husband, forging her signature and got the refund also. She has been filing returns for the last 25 years. The Income Tax Department, when complained about it, is still hatching eggs - verifying the signatures. Only three years have passed since the complaint was made.
Ruchika's case - 19 years. Verification of signature 57 years.
