Judgments on Criminal Prosecution

Wednesday, March 11, 2009
Criminal Prosecution

Criminal Prosecution — The trial Court, in the present case, acquitted the accused on the ground that the matter arose out of breach of contract, the same was of civil nature and a criminal case against the accused was not made out — High Court endorsed the view and dismissed the appeal — Held, the approach is clearly erroneous — Merely because an act has a civil profile is not sufficient to denude it of its criminal outfit — Judgment of the High Court set aside — Matter remitted back to it for fresh consideration in accordance with law.
