WHAT TO DO IF SOMEONE CHEATS YOU OR COMMIT FRAUD ? 420 IPC

If someone has made a fool of you and have cheated upon you in monetary terms: 1.The first step you have to take is immediately file a complaint u/s 420 IPC in police station. Police will register it and give you a DD Entry. 2- If police denies to register FIR, meet SHO. Still if nobody takes action, speed post a copy of registered complaint to ACP, DCP. Keep receipt with you. 3- File an application in court U/s 156(3) Crpc for registering FIR. It is mandatory to show receipts of ACP,DCP for filling said application in Court. If police denies to register FIR, the court has the power to register an FIR. WHAT CAN BE USED AS EVIDENCE? 1- Any document supporting you case.( agreement, cheque, invoice, any other written document etc.) 2- Whatsapp chats, text messages, phone recordings. 3-Video recording, CCTV, photographs, any witness. 5- Any evidence on social media that helps in supporting/ proving your facts. Courts are nowadays very strict in 420 ipc cases. There is a possibility that the accused may get arrested immediately after FIR ( depending upon the evidence you have). The chances of recovery of money are high only if steps are taken timely. hashtagCriminallaw hashtaglaw Kanika Bhardwaj, Advocate New Delhi, 9582000415
