Acquittal in 498a IPC due to hearsay evidences and the absence of any legal evidence
Gananath Pattnaik vs State of Orissa
Appeal (crl.) 1 of 1995
About/from the judgment:
It follows therefore that there was no legal evidence tendered in the case which could be made the basis for returning a finding with respect to the alleged cruelty of the accused with the deceased. In the absence of any legal evidence produced in the case we are of the opinion that the prosecution has failed to prove beyond doubt that the appellant had committed the offence under Section 498A of the Indian Penal Code and find that it is a fit case where he is entitled to be given the benefit of doubt.
