Wilson Mathew v. The State NCT of Delhi and Ors. - (High Court of Delhi) (15 Sep 2015)

Security cheques to be proved as given in discharge of legally enforceable debt

MANU/DE/2691/2015

Banking

In a case involving arrest of the accused for dishonoured cheques, the Court allowed the accused’s petition. It noted the peculiar facts of the case and various contradictions in the complainant’s statements, particularly that it had accepted the postdated cheques from the accused as security. The Court held that though there was a presumption that a holder of a cheque received it in discharge of debt, the complainant had failed to establish the same.
