Volume No - 7     Issue No - 16

It is by now well settled that acquittal carries with it double presumption of innocence; it is reversed only when found blatantly perverse, resting upon fringes of impossibility and resulting into miscarriage of justice. It cannot be set aside merely on the possibility of a contra view. The High Court has derogated from settled principles of law and thus departure does not commend itself with approval. Resultantly, Criminal appeal is allowed, impugned judgment dated 15.2.2016 is set aside. The appellant is acquitted from the charge and shall be set at liberty forthwith, if not required in any other case. 

Judgement as it is
