Dishonour of Cheque

Dishonour of cheque — Complainant filed a complaint-petition under Sections 406, 409, 417 and 420  of the I.P.C. — Principle allegation made therein against the appellant-accused was that the appellant-accused himself had told the complainant that he had issued fabricated cheques knowingly with an intention to cheat him and grab his money. He would not pay his money, he is free to take any action, whatever he likes — Held, even assuming that such a statement has been made, the same, held, does not exhibit that there had been any intention on the part of the appellant-accused herein to commit an offence under Section 417 of the I.P.C. — Only because the appellant-accused had issued cheques which were dishonoured, the same by itself would not mean that he had cheated the complainant.
