Patna HC

Criminal Writ Jurisdiction Case No.307 of 2016

About/from the judgment:

Charges cannot be framed against the accused without giving him reasonable opportunity to examine police papers!

 

In order to avoid delay in the disposal of the case, it is hereby directed that the accused-petitioner must be provided with copies of all such materials, which are being relied upon by the prosecution, and, thereafter, giving the accused petitioner adequate time and opportunity, as may be deemed necessary by the learned trial court, the case shall be taken up for hearing on the point of framing of charges and, then, necessary order in accordance with law shall be passed; more so, because the offences alleged attract the provisions of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO).
