Facts, as emerging out from the record, are that an FIR was lodged on 16.6.2009 by the respondent Praveen Kumar Gupta against the applicants for the offence of Section 420 IPC alleging the incident of 4.6.2009. The allegation was that both the accused applicants issued two separate cheques to the complainant, but the same were dishonoured by the bank. Complainant Praveen Kumar Gupta alleged that he was allured by the accused applicants with the promise to double the money in a specified period.
(3.) Matter was investigated, whereupon police submitted the final report. The Investigation Officer unfolded the true story and found that Praveen Kumar Gupta had given a debt to the applicants and in lieu of that debt the applicants issued the blank cheques to Mr. Gupta.
