Briefly the details of the case:
A business transaction ,transacted at delhi , cheque issued at bangalore.Chk signed by two directors.The cheque in question was returned ,the case filed as per the rules.The complainant made the company , me and my wife one other director who has not signed the cheque.
recived the summons from delhi court which educates the accused with the below citation: "Further take notice that unless you are prepared to admit the offence charged, you should bringyour witnesses with you on the date mentioned above.
The first hearing exemption was taken . In the second hearing A dd for the cheque amount was sent to our lawyer.Now my lawyer says that the complainant refused to accept the DD .
My question: I wanted to compound the case and close it in the second hearing itself to save myself from the hassels involved in attending the case being in bangalore. What is the next step?
Is it mandatory that i should attend the case on the next hearing date to settle the issue?If so what significance does the citation given in the summons order hold for accused willing to compound the case.?
Thanking you all in advance for the efforts that you may take in providing clarity on the subject matter.
