R. BASANT, J.CRL.M.C.NO. 1825 OF 2007
Dated this the 7th day of June, 2007
ORDERThe petitioner is a Police Constable against whom an F.I.R. has been registered and the allegation raised is that he has assets disproportionate to his known sources of income. As soon as the F.I.R. is registered, the petitioner has come to this Court. He prays that the F.I.R. may be quashed by invoking the jurisdiction under Sec.482 of the Cr.P.C.
2. What is the reason? The learned counsel for the petitioner submits that the petitioner's wife runs a business and the family has ample source to justify the assets. This is the question which the petitioner must raise before the Investigating Officer. He will certainly be at liberty to show to the Investigating Officer that he has no assets disproportionate to his known sources of income. I have no reason to assume that the Investigator will not consider this CRL.M.C.NO. 1825 OF 2007 -: 2 :- aspect to the matter. At any rate, I find absolutely no merit in the prayer to quash the proceedings on the ground that the petitioner shall be able to explain his assets with the theory that his wife has a business and income therefrom. The prayer is without any merit.
3. This Crl.M.C. is, in these circumstances, dismissed. Sd/-
