The complainant started working for a company as a freelancer, there is no duly signed document but the complainant has the confirmation message in Skype conversation. Also he has all the conversation with the said company's employees regarding the progress of the work and other conversations.
Now the defendant company says that "you were not worked in our company as an employee nor freelancer". Also they are accusing that the complainant accessed the server illegally and stole the data. Actually it was legal work, so how can the complainant get remedy? while filing the case the court questioned the jurisdiction because the complainant is in one district and the defendant is in other district within the same state Tamilnadu.
Actually the work was done and committed in the place of Complainant but later point of time the defendant fraudulently denies the work and accusing that the Complainant access their server illegally from Complainant in his location.
The complainant filed case in the Judicial Magistrate Court under 200 CrPC (1973) along with all the evidence to prove his innocence.
How could we decide the jurisdiction? Is there is any case law or sections in favor to the complainant in India to file a case in his Jurisdiction?
