SC refuses to quash forgery charges against Congress' Jagdish Tytler
New Delhi [India], January (ANI): The Supreme Court on Thursday refused to quash the charges framed against Congress leader Jagdish Tytler in connection with a forgery and cheating case.
The apex court also asked the trial court to expeditiously try the case in one year.
The Special CBI Court had earlier framed charges against Tytler and a businessman, Abhishek Verma in a case alleging that the duo had forged a letter addressed to former prime minister Manmohan Singh in 2009.
It was challenged by Tytler in the Delhi High Court, which had also refused to quash the order on framing of charges against him.
Challenging the Delhi High Court order, Tytler knocked the doors of the apex court, which also refused to grant any relief to him today.
The matter came to light after then Minister of State for Home Ajay Maken filed a complaint alleging that a forged letter on his letterhead was written to the Manmohan Singh seeking to ease business visa norms.(ANI)
