State Of Odisha vs Nirjharini Patnaik @ Mohanty 2024 INSC 346 – S 482 CrPC

Code Of Criminal Procedure, 1973; Section 482 – High Court quashed an FIR – Allowing appeal, SC observed: High Court has hastily concluded that there is no evidence to show meeting of minds between the other accused persons and the Respondents which in our considered opinion, can only be decided after a thorough examination of evidence and witnesses by the Trial Court – Dismissing the case at the preliminary stage, especially when linked to a broader pattern of similar frauds involving government lands as part of a larger conspiracy risks undermining the integrity of multiple ongoing investigations and judicial processes. Such a decision would be detrimental to the investigation of similar fraudulent schemes against public assets.
