Learned counsel for the petitioner contends that the petitioner
had issued a cheque to the Insurance Company, which was dishonoured.
The fact remains that the money was not paid to the Insurance
Company either by cheque or cash.
Learned counsel for the petitioner has argued that later on, the
petitioner had paid the money to the Insurance Company, for which valid
cover note was issued.
Learned counsel for the petitioner presses the present revision
petition only on the point of quantum of sentence.
Considering the facts and circumstances of the case and the fact
that the petitioner is neither the previous convict nor any trial is pending
against him, the sentence of simple imprisonment for one year awarded to
him is reduced to simple imprisonment for nine months. However, the
remaining part of the sentence shall remain intact.
With the abovenoted modification in the sentence of
imprisonment, the present revision petition is disposed of.
