Court summons HSBC CEO for terminating employee

A city court Tuesday summoned the chief executive officer (CEO) of HSBC India and others to appear before it after finding that the multi national company (MNC) bank had forged documents to wriggle out of a case relating to termination of an employee.

Metropolitan Magistrate Jitendra Mishra, while hearing a petition of Manju Saxena challenging her termination from service, observed that there was prima facie a case for summoning the bank's CEO, HR head and manager north India to appear before the court July 28.

Saxena had contended that she was summarily terminated from service with immediate effect in 2005 and the intimation of this was sent through an e-mail.

"It is clear that in the present case a prima facie case for summoning has been made out against (CEO, HR Head and Manager North) persons under section 420 (cheating), 463 (forgery), 464 (making a false document), 467 (forgery of valuable security, will etc), 468 (forgery for purpose of cheating), 471 (using as genuine a forged document or electronic record) R/W 120 (B) Indian Penal Code," the judge said.
