Once Case For Cognisable Offence Registered, SHOs To Act Swiftly To See Offenders Don’t Escape Clutches of Law: Madras HC

The Madras High Court recently observed that “the Station House Officers, once they registered cases for the commission of cognizable offences, especially, of more serious offences are expected to act shiftily and see to that the offenders do not escape from the clutches of law”.
The bench of Justices M. Sathyanarayanan and P. Rajamanickam were hearing a PIL by a practising advocate to direct the state to pay fair and just compensation for the mental agony and sufferings experienced by the victim in a FIR under Sections 341, 294(b) and 323 I.P.C. and Section 4 of Tamil Nadu Prohibition of Harassment of Women Act, 2002.
