Volume No - 17     Issue No - 14

It is a well settled law that at the time of framing of the charges, the probative value of the material on record cannot be gone into but before framing of charge the Court must apply it’s judicial mind on the material placed on record and must be satisfied that the commission of offence by the accused was possible. Indeed, the Court has limited scope of enquiry and has to see whether any prima­facie case against the accused is made out or not. At the same time, the Court is also not expected to mirror the prosecution story, but to consider the broad probabilities of the case, weight of prima­facie evidence, documents produced and any basic infirmities etc.Therefore, we deem it fit to allow the instant appeal and set­aside the impugned order. Consequently, the Appellant is discharged in the criminal proceedings arising out of Special Case No.02 of 2011.
