Md Tauhid @ Kallu vs State Of Bihar CrA 721 Of 2024 – Presumption Of Innocence

Presumption Of Innocence – The Police Officer seems to be under an impression that the accused has to appear before him and prove his innocence. Such approach cannot be countenanced. [SC expressed shock after it found that police officer stated in his counter affidavit that the accused “on interrogation pleaded himself innocent but did not produce and material in support of his claim.” – It is obvious that the Police need the custody of the appellant not for interrogation but for some other reason, the court noted.]
