by samreen

Justice Saldanha had approached the Bombay High Court after the anticipatory bail granted to him by a sessions court in connection with a cheating case filed by Mumbai police was revoked.

According to a report appearing in Daijiworld dated October 13, 2016, Justice Michael Saldanha had termed the cheating case filed against him and his brother by HSBC Bank as “malicious” and “vindictive”.

Justice Saldanha, who retired as judge of Karnataka High Court in 2004, and his brother Mark Saldanha, had been accused of cheating, forgery, and criminal intimidation using anonymous communication and criminal conspiracy. The anticipatory bail granted by sessions court to him in this case was revoked on October 3, 2016. He approached the high court, and the Bombay high court bench presided over by Justice Gadkari, on October 7, 2016, has granted anticipatory bail to Justice Saldana and his brother. The prosecution has sought time to verify the facts and the case now stands adjourned to October 21.


The retired judge M F Saldanha, who had presided over several cases in the hallowed portals of Karnataka and Bombay High Courts, had to himself run for cover and knock on the doors of different courts seeking anticipatory bail in the cheating case booked against him by HSBC bank.
After the anticipatory bail granted to him by the sessions court was revoked, he sought the same from Bombay High Court.
