Last seen theory – not established – 6 days gap not explained properly – prosecution failed to explain about the presence of deceased at police station when deceased aunt visited the police station – the last seen theory lost it’s sanctity – when some of the accused are acquitted , the same benefit doubt applies to the accused also as the case was found on last seen theory – Apex court held that n the present case as noticed above, the Sessions Judge convicted the accused Nos.1 to 3 on the basis of last seen evidence, the correctness of last seen version emanating from Valarmathi (PW-1), Amirthavalli (PW-3) and Murugan (PW-4) and as per the prosecution case is also doubtful, there being contradiction about place where the accused were last seen with the deceased Manikandan.

Quashing of CRIMINAL CASE – STING OPERATION – The expression ‘sting operation’ seems to have emerged from the title of a popular movie called “The Sting” which was screened sometime in the year 1973. The movie was based on a somewhat complicated plot hatched by two persons to trick a third person into committing a crime. Being essentially a deceptive operation, though designed to nab a criminal, a sting operation raises certain moral and ethical questions. The victim, who is otherwise innocent, is lured into committing a crime on the assurance of absolute secrecy and confidentiality of the circumstances raising the potential question as to how such a victim can be held responsible for the crime which he would not have committed but for the enticement. Another issue that arises from such an operation is the fact that the means deployed to establish the commission of the crime itself involves a culpable act. – High court dismissed the petition for quash – Apex court confirmed the same = RAJAT PRASAD … APPELLANT (S) VERSUS C.B.I. … RESPONDENT (S) = 2014 ( April.Part ) judis.nic.in/supremecourt/filename=41457
