Legal Games(2) Charge framed that accused molested ‘PD’ instead ‘SD’- (?) Acquitted to be tried again


In 1996, A complaint was lodged that accused molested one ‘SD’

By mistake charge wrongly framed. Charge was framed that accused molested one ‘PD’

Accused kept saying No.

However accused was convicted for molesting SD by Magistrate.

Appeal court confirmed.
High Court also confirmed conviction.

Supreme Court, in 2010, held that accused was wrongly convicted.

It set aside conviction and ordered retrial (after 14 years) of case after correcting charge.
