Allahabad HC, Lucknow Bench


Case :- U/S 482/378/407 No. - 3321 of 2012

About/from the judgment:

From a joint reading of Section 173 Cr.P.C., Para 122 of U.P. Police Regulations and Government Order dated 03.01.2010, it is clear that:


  1. Investigating Officer is duty-bound to give information about the result of investigation to complainant (who has lodged the FIR), whether he submits charge-sheet or final report;
  2. while submitting charge-sheet Investigating Officer has to inform Magistrate whether accused is in jail or on bail or is being forwarded with the charge-sheet. If charge-sheet is being submitted after declaring accused as absconder, a case under Section 174-A of IPC has also to be registered;
  3. no charge-sheet can be submitted without complying with the provisions of Section 170 and 173 Cr.P.C.;
  4. ground that accused is political or influential person, as such his arrest may trigger the violence, would not be ground to submit charge-sheet without arresting/forwarding him and
  5. if the report under Section 173 falls short of above compliance, court will be justified in insisting on compliance before accepting it for cognizance or otherwise.
