Woman forges records to win matrimonial case, arrested


NEW DELHI: Forging court records to win a matrimonial dispute with her estranged husband has landed a woman in serious trouble. What Madhulika Rastogi thought would give her an edge over her husband in a matrimonial battle proved to be a nightmare for her after Delhi Police arrested her for forging an order sheet and the signature of a judge who was hearing a case lodged by her against the estranged husband.

Madhulika, who was produced before the court on Wednesday, was sent to one-day police custody. “Accused Madhulika Rastogi is remanded to one-day police custody,” metropolitan magistrate Jitender Mishra said, allowing the plea of the Crime Branch that custodial interrogation was required to find out the modus operandi of committing the forgery.

Madhulika, who is involved in a matrimonial battle with her estranged husband Ashish Rastogi, a pilot with a leading airlines, is accused of forging the signatures and order sheets of metropolitan magistrate Veena Rani.

Metropolitan magistrate Rani was hearing a case lodged by Madhulika claiming maintenance from her husband under section 125 of the Criminal Procedure Code. In a bid to settle scores with her husband, Madhulika tried to fudge the document of her case. She proved to be unlucky as the judge figured out the cheating and decided to take action against her.

After noticing fudging of the order sheets and her signatures, the magistrate herself lodged a complaint with additional chief metropolitan magistrate Kiran Bansal who, in turn, had asked the Crime Branch on February 1 to lodge an FIR against the accused. The accused has been booked under various penal provisions of the IPC, dealing with cheating and forged documents.

“As this complaint is a glaring example where the order sheet of the court and signatures of the MM has been forged, the custodial interrogation of the accused is required,” the ACMM had said. M K Sharma, counsel for the husband of the accused, alleged she has filed around six frivolous cases against his client.
