Judgments on Site Plan or Panchnama

Sunday, October 31, 2010
Site Plan or Panchnama

Site Plan or Panchnama — It is common experience of one and all that site plan or panchnama of place of incident is being prepared to indicate the state of things found at the place of incident.

 
Site Plan or Panchnama

Site Plan or Panchnama — The statement of PW1 Jhabbulal that Guljari had taken electric line illegally by putting a wire on the main line which proceeded to the tube well was disbelieved by the High Court on the ground that the Investigating Officer had not mentioned either in the site plan or in the inspection note that electric line had been taken in an unauthorized manner from the main line which proceeded to the tube-well of Suresh Chand — Held, it is common experience of one and all that site plan or panchnama of place of incident is being prepared to indicate the state of things found at the place of incident — In site plan, Investigating Officer is not supposed to note whether electric line had been taken in an unauthorized manner or not — That is not the purpose for which site plan is prepared in a criminal case — Thus, without sufficient reason the High Court disbelieved the claim made by PW1 Jhabbulal that deceased Guljari had taken electric line illegally by putting a wire on the main line — On the facts and in the circumstances of the case emerging from the record, this Court is of the opinion that the High Court was not justified in coming to the conclusion that there was complete darkness in the whole village and, therefore, it was not possible for the eye-witnesses to see the incident.
