Bar & Bench

Justice Gautam Patel of the Bombay High Court has ordered an internal investigation after receiving a complaint from two lawyers that an order has been forged in his name.

Advocates Umesh Vasant Mohite and Hetal Arvind Pandya had filed a handwritten complaint before Justice Patel on Saturday, last week. After reviewing the forged document, Justice Patel found that,

"There is no manner of doubt that the entire document is not only a forgery but a clumsy one."

For starters, the forged order was stated to have been passed on a non-working day. The judge pointed out, "This document purports to be made on December1, 2019. That was a Sunday. No such order could ever have been passed."
