Special Court on 6.12.06 which is without any kind of cogent reason and evidence, therefore, impugned order deserves to be quashed and set aside and case should be remanded back to the Special Court for deciding afresh according to the provisions of law.
Learned Public Prosecutor could not oppose the appeal because of the peculiar facts and only states that if the case is remanded back for taking evidence and case is decided afresh in accordance with law then that will be a just and proper order.
