How appreciate the Evidence – Sections 498-A, 304-B, 201 and 176 of the Indian Penal Code (for short ‘IPC’) read with Sections 3, 4 and 6 (2) of the Dowry Prohibition Act. – Trial court acquitted the accused – High court convicted the accused – Apex court held that The High Court is correct in its observation that it was not appropriate for the trial court to expect documentary evidence regarding acceptance of dowry as generally such a record would not be kept since it was not a commercial transaction. The High Court also appears to be justified in its observation that non production of the villagers to prove the dowry demand would not be fatal. and further held that Strangely, the High Court has discarded Mahazar drawn by PW-8 by giving a spacious reason viz. it was not an exhibited document before the Court, little realising that this was the document produced by the prosecution itself and even without formal proof thereto by the prosecution, it was always open for the defence to seek reliance on such an evidence to falsify the prosecution version. and further held that it is well established that if two views are possible on the basis of evidence on record and one favourable to the accused has been taken by the trial court, it ought not to be disturbed by the appellate court. We thus, find that there were no solid and weighty reasons to reverse the verdict of acquittal and to convict the appellant under the given circumstances. Accordingly, we allow this appeal and set aside the judgment of the High Court, holding that the appellant is not guilty of the charges foisted against him. = CRIMINAL APPEAL NO.1671 OF 2011 |RAMAIAH @ RAMA |…..APPELLANT(S) | | | | |VERSUS | | |STATE OF KARNATAKA |…..RESPONDENT(S) =2014 Aug.

Order XXIII Rule 3 and Order III Rule 1 of Civil Procedure Code- Arbitration proceedings – Arbitrator passed awards – challenged in District court – Compromise signed by Govt. Pleader on behalf of Govt. – Compromise decree was challenged by Govt. as Govt. Pleader is not authorised – High court set aside the decrees – Apex court held thatOrder XXIII Rule 3 and Order III Rule 1 of Civil Procedure Code as held in Jineshwardas (D) through L.R.s and Ors. v. Smt. Jagrani and Anr., (2003) 11 SCC 372, has held as under: “If a power-of-attorney holder can enter into an agreement or compromise on behalf of his principal, so can counsel, possessed of the requisite authorization by vakalatnama, act on behalf of his client.” We find that in the present case the Government Pleader was legally entitled to enter into a compromise with the appellant and his written endorsement on the Memo filed by the appellant can be deemed as a valid consent of the Respondent itself. Hence the Counsel appearing for a party is fully competent to put his signature to the terms of any compromise upon which a decree can be passed in proper compliance with the provisions of Order XXIII Rule 3 and such decree is perfectly valid.= CIVIL APPEAL NOS.7164-7166 OF 2014 (arising out of SLP (C) Nos. 23016-23018 of 2012) |Y.

Sec.376 (f)/302/201 I.P.C.- all sentences order to run consecutively – Sec. 31 (2) of Criminal Procedure Code – Apex court held that trial and High court committed error in view of Sec. 31(2) of Cr.P.C.- Section 31 of Cr.P.C. relates to sentence in cases of conviction of several offences at one trial. Proviso to Sub Section (2) to Section 31 lays down the embargo whether the aggregate punishment of prisoner is for a period of longer than 14 years. In view of the fact that life imprisonment means imprisonment for full and complete span of life, the question of consecutive sentences in case of conviction for several offences at one trial does not arise.
