    I am an accused, and a complaint has been filed by way of Assignment. What does it mean. Pls clarify

    You’ll have to check it from the complaint itself. It would have been explained therein.

    It may perhaps be referring to the fact that the cheque was endorsed / assigned to the holder in due course by the payee, if the cheque was “& Co.” type cheque.

    Or, it may be that the complaint has been filed by the POA of the complainant.

    You could have seen from the complaint and should have mentioned at 2-3 lines of details from the complaint. Certain things have to be seen in context.
