Kuldip Singh, J. (Oral)
Impugned in the present petition filed under Section 482
Cr.P.C. is the order dated 9.11.2017 Annexure P3, vide which the learned
Additional Sessions Judge, Kurukshetra allowed the revision against the
order of Learned Judicial Magistrate 1st Class, Kurukshetra and ordered the
framing of additional charge under Section 354 IPC against Satpal Singh.
Learned counsel for the petitioner contends that the charge was
framed at a belated stage when the case was fixed for defence evidence. No
new evidence has come. I am of the view that the learned Additional
Sessions Judge has given sound reasoning in support of his order, stating
that the additional charge is required to be framed. Charge can be framed at
any stage of the case. There is no illegality and infirmity in the impugned
Resultantly, the present petition stands dismissed.
