READ  Suresh Hazra-vs-State Of West Bengal on 12 January, 2007

I find that the investigation is complete and the matter has

been committed to the Court of Sessions. Charge has not yet been

framed. The nature of grievances canvassed before me may be

appreciated at the time of framing of charge. However, in view of

the uncontroverted allegations in the charge sheet, I am not

inclined in interfering with the proceeding at this stage. It is,

however, open to the petitioners to agitate the grievances

canvassed herein at the appropriate stage of the proceeding

including the stage of consideration of charge in accordance with

law.

With the aforesaid observation, the revision petition is

disposed of.

Urgent photostat certified copy of this order, if applied for,

shall be given to the parties, as expeditiously as possible on

compliance of all necessary formalities.
