Court No. 49
Crl.Misc.Application No. 1623 of 2006
Prem Singh and another . . . . . Vs. . . . . . State of U.P. and another.
This is an application under section 482 Cr.P.C. for quashing the order dated 19.7.2005 passed by the learned Chief Judicial Magistrate, Mainpuri in complaint case no. 1795 of 2005, Chameli Devi Vs. Devendra Singh & others, under sections 147, 148, 149, 392 I.P.C. and 3(2) & 5 of The Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities ) Act.
I have heard learned counsel for the applicants and learned A.G.A. for the State.
A perusal of the record reveals the above complaint was filed against accused applicants and some others, and the accused have been summoned by the learned Magistrate after evidence under section 202(2) Cr.P.C. However, it is to be seen that the offence under section 302 I.P.C. is exclusively triable by the court of Session s and so before passing the order for summoning the accused the learned Magistrate should have recorded statements of all the prosecution witnesses as required under the proviso to section 202(2) Cr.P.C. but he has not done so and the statement of the doctor etc. have not also been been recorded. Therefore, the order passed by the Magistrate summoning the accused is not in accordance with the law and so it is liable to be set aside.
The application under section 482 Cr.P.C. is allowed and the summoning order passed by the learned Chief Judicial Magistrate, Mainpuri in complaint case no. 1795 of 2005 is set aside and the matter is remanded to his court for making compliance of the requirement of the proviso to section 202 Cr.P.C. The learned Magistrate after making the above compliance shall hear the complainant on the point of summoning the accused persons and shall pass suitable orders in the matter in accordance with law.
