Man pretending to be lawyer arrested in court

A man impersonating a lawyer was apprehended from Tees Hazari Court on Wednesday when he came to defend a case regarding the cancellation of a non-bailable warrant (NBW).

'Anil, resident of Bahadurgarh, Haryana has been arrested on the information given by the Bar Association to the police. Anil had come to defend the the NBW issued against one Manohar Lal in Tees Hazari Court,” said a police officer.

Bar Association General Secretary Jaspal Singh, complainant of the case, said Manohar Lal was an accused under the section 138 IPC (cheque dishonour case). The court had issued a NBW against Lal and Anil came to file an application for the cancellation of NBW.

'We received the information that a fake lawyer had come to defend a criminal case falling under the court of Metropolitan Magistrate Rakesh Kumar Singh in room number 42. But before he started, we laid a trap and caught the him,' added Jaspal.

In the process of verifying, Anil failed to show the original enrollment number of the lawyer, said Jaspal. After then, the police was called and he was handed over to them.

Anil first claimed that he had taken the law degree seven years ago and had been practising in the court under a renowned lawyer of Tees Hazari court. It was revealed that Anil was using the enrollment number of the same lawyer under whom he was practising, police said.

Police have registered the case under section 419 of IPC (cheating by personation) against Anil at the Subzi Mandi police station in North district. ‘We are verifying the documents shown by the Anil and investigation is on,’ police official said.
