NEW DELHI: A court here has summoned a female dentist and
the medical superintendent of a local hospital here for allegedly
furnishing false proof of income in order to obtain higher
maintenance from her NRI husband in a divorce case.
Magistrate Sandeep Yadav summoning Dr Shalini Bansal and Dr
G S Soin, on May 12, 2008 held, "from the averments of
the complaint, read with supporting evidence offences under
Sections (including) 193 (false evidence), 197 (issuing false
certificate), 199 (false evidence in court), and 120-B (criminal
conspiracy) of the IPC are disclosed against the accused."
husband Rajiv Tayal has accused her of adopting a modus operandi
in which a girl 'traps' an NRI boy, marries him, lives with
him abroad for six months or more and files a case of divorce
after returning to India and presses for maintenance.
Bansal is accused of submitting in a court, trying her divorce
case, a certificate allegedly issued by Dr Soin, Medical Superintendent
of the Guru Govind Singh Hospital (GGSH) to the effect that
she had not received any salary for the last two months then.
an aeronautical engineer working in the US has in his complaint
filed through his counsel K K Jha also accused her of stating
on oath before the court on August eight, 2005 that she was
not receiving any salary from the GGS Hospital, where she
was employed as Dental Surgeon, since December 2005.
also allegedly averred in her affidavit that she had never
indulged in any private practice or any consultancy with any
organisation before and after her marriage. This was done
in order to influence the maintenance amount to be awarded
by the court, Jha said.
