Police not noting FIR in fraud / Cheating amounting 70 lacs

I have sent a complaint to NSE /SEBI/ EOW on 24 / 06 / 10,  in respect of Fraud / Cheating amounting to Rs 70 Lacs (approx.) by the Officials of M/s Religare Securities Ltd in stock market.  In this regard police have only noted complaint and are not lodging the FIR and have closed the file.

 

They have not investigated the matter properly and have not even traced out the email id saying that they can not do the investigation in context to the cyber crime and are also not even forwarding the case to Economic offence wing cyber crime division.

For legal proceeding I was advised to go to the Arbitration of NSE because of arbitration clause in the agreement. Even the police adviced  that. Now, I have come to know that according to the Supreme Court Judgment in the serious allegations of Fraud and Criminal Misappropriation the matter can only be decided by court and not by the Arbitrator. In my case fraud / Cheating and Cyber Crime involving sending of fraudulent statements through e- mail is noticed against which i have lodged the complaint to EOW & Police Dept.

 SC Ruling - Arbitration and conciliation act - Serious allegations of fraud and criminal misappropriation - Can only be decided by Court when parties lead detailed evidence and not by the Arbitrator. 2009(3) Apex Court Judgments 643 (S.C.). 

As i have consulted lawyers i am highly confused , they say i should not avoid arbitration. It may get time barred ( six Months limit only). However it seems, arbitration does not have powers to decide in this case. Others say i should go to civil court + criminal court to get justice. I am confused.

I am unable to find the proper guidance from the SEBI /  NSE  Website.  In this very case what should be my Legal course of action. Pls. guide accordingly, to seek justice. Will arbitration be of any help to me? Will the judgment  of arbitration hold good in the case of fraud / criminal misappropriation? Will the revised fees of Rs. 30,000/- be reversed in that case? 

Also pls. suggest some competent Lawyer with relevant experience with Contact No’s.

Thanks,

As per SEBI ACT,1992,  there are several clauses dealing your grievances. Civil court has got no jurisdiction to deal the matter. 
You have to approach SEBI Board and against which if you aggrieved, Security Appellate Tribunal . 

Similarly , only the SEBI board can give complaint against under criminal law .that too before Sessions court. No person's  complaint  will be taken cognizance. That's why police desist to take action. That is , even a complaint by you, they cant take action under law. competent person in SEBI Board. . 

If regarding the rules, if you want to appeal, have to appeal before Central Government. 

A similar model complaint was preferred against  securities broker. for easy understanding, it is attached. 

You may start to prefer approach concerned for necessary releif. 
  

Refer sections 11 (1), 11 (2) (e)  &  11 (2) (i) OF SECURITIES  AND EXCHANGE BOARD OF INDIA ACT, 1992 for more clarity. 

You may prefer complaint against those provisions and can seek a remedy . Punishments are referred under sections 15
