Cheque Bouncing could also lead to a cheating case also

In future, if you issue a cheque without sufficient balance in your account be careful, besides a cheque bouncing case you could also be tried for cheating.

Supreme Court of India, today, ruled that the two trials do not breach double jeopardy doctrine.

The decision was delivered by a bench of Justice B. S. Chauhan and Justice J. K. Khehar while dismissing an appeal for quashing a criminal case of cheating and breach of trust pending before a Chief Judicial Magistrate in Gujarat.
