Bombay High Court remarked that they have come across at least three such cases in last three weeks wherein the statement of the prosecutrix has been totally disbelieved in the grave and a serious offence under Section 376 IPC by not following the law enunciated by the Supreme Court in its catena of decisions. It is the second case in this week wherein Police did not adhere to the basic principles of investigation.
In this case, the Delhi High Court held that the right to investigation cannot be taken away from the investigating officer only because the conduct of Test Identification Parade (TIP) was ordered after the release of articles to the person who was in lawful custody of the articles.
