Facts of the case
On 26.06.2009 a complaint endorsed by Additional Munsiff JMIC Samba was received in Crime Branch, Jammu under section 156(3) Cr. PC. The complainant Rakesh Khullar, Manager of M/s Visen Industries Ltd., Phase-I, SIDCO Industrial Complex, Barhi Brahmana, Samba said in the complaint that their company was a public limited company manufacturing various industrial polymer emulsions and alleged that the accused Vijay Bishnoi Prop. of Vijay Metal Distributors 201, 2nd Floor Swami Smart Darshan Building, Mumbai and Pradeep Shah Prop. M/s Raj Sales, 3 Latief House Ground 250, Sant Tuka Ram Road, Iron Market, Mumbai-400009 and others who are dealing in the business of distribution of metal products including stainless steel pipes, entered into a contract with the complainant for the supply of 304 and 316 stainless steel pipes of specific standard/grade, the samples of which were approved by the Metallurgical Laboratory Pvt. Ltd. and Elca Labs through M/s Chempro Inspections.
The accused persons instead of supplying stainless steel pipes of 316 and 304 grade delivered stainless steel pipes which turned out to be totally off grade and not of that quality for which the orders were placed with the accused.
The material was subjected to test check in the company where the complainant observed cracks in the said pipes. Had the material been used it might have caused explosion endangering the human lives in the company. Accordingly, FIR was lodged and investigation started.
During the course of investigation, the statements of complainant and prosecution witnesses were recorded. The records related to the supply/ purchase of Stainless Steel Pipes in question were obtained and seized, the handout said.
The samples of the substandard Pipes in question were collected and sent to NISST Mandi, Govind Garh, Punjab who confirmed that the samples were of low/poor quality.
From the evidence, oral as well as documentary, collected during investigation, “it has been found that the accused persons dishonestly induced the complainant to buy the poor quality pipes under the pretext of 304 & 316 Grade Stainless Steel Pipes and thereby caused wrongful loss to him to the tune of `1,00,36,940/- besides endangering the lives of the factory workers of the complainant.”
“The accused persons were found to have committed the above mentioned offences and were challaned in the Court of Law for judicial determination.”
Meanwhile, the next date of hearing in the case has been fixed on 09.06.2012.
