Bank Hauz Khas Market, New Delhi-110017
Subject: Request to stop payment of cheque No. 110097 drawn on my SB A/c No. 102722.
I had issued a cheque No. 110097 for Rs. 750 Only (Rs. Seven Hundred and Fifty only) in favor of M/s Jaina Book Company, Bhagirath Palace, Chandni Chowk, Delhi-110006 towards payment of some law books I had ordered from them. I am an old customer of the book company and I usually send cheques after receipt of the ordered books.
The books were supplied to me in the first -week of the month of March and I had sent the above-mentioned cheque on the same day. I have been informed that the cheque has not reached the party. So, I issued another cheque No. 110099 for the same amount. I think the first cheque had got lost in the mail transit. So, I request you to stop payment of cheque No. 110097 for Rs. 750 only if it is presented or comes to you in clearance having fallen in the hands of some undesirable element.
Please advise me about the status of the cheque.
