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 itâ€™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 primaÂfacie 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 primaÂfacie evidence, documents produced and any basic infirmities etc.Therefore, we deem it fit to allow the instant appeal and setÂaside the impugned order. Consequently, the Appellant is discharged in the criminal proceedings arising out of Special Case No.02 of 2011.
