Pravendra Kumar v. State Of U.P. & Others - CRIMINAL MISC. WRIT PETITION No. 6066 of 2007  RD-AH 9925 (23 May 2007)
Crl. Misc. Writ Petition No. 6066 of 2007
Hon'ble Sushil Harkauli, J.
Hon'ble Ajai Kumar Singh, J.
Heard learned counsel for the petitioner.
The first information report has been lodged on 18.4.2001 under section 302 I.P.C., alleging that the father of the informant has been shot dead. No accused has been named in the first information report. It appears that during investigation, the name of the petitioner has come to light.
The petitioner is seeking quashing of the first information report and staying of his arrest in the murder case, on the averment that because of some earlier enmity, some persons have wrongly named the petitioner.
This kind of averments can not form the basis of quashing the first information report or staying the arrest in writ jurisdiction, especially in murder cases.
The writ petition is accordingly dismissed.
