Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973; Section 319 –Discretionary powers under Section 319 of the CrPC ought to have been used sparingly where circumstances of the case so warrant – crucial test to be applied is one which is more that prima facie case as exercised at the time of framing of charge, but short of satisfaction to an extent that the evidence, if goes unrebutted, would lead to conviction – Referred to Sagar v. State of Uttar Pradesh & Anr., (2022) 6 SCC 389 and Hardeep Singh v State of Punjab & Ors., (2014) 3 SCC 92.
