ATUR CHATUR:- I am about to write all that you want to know about a CS & How and When to challenge a CS and on What Grounds a CS (Charge Sheet) can be legally challenged?

Atur Chatur's Noble Thoughts in relation to CHARGE SHEET are as follows:-

Rule 1:- Quashing of CS & Quashing of FIR have same effect i.e., nullifying the criminal case against you but Quashing of Charge Sheet is certainly better as that would mean u have challenged even the Police Investigation & came out from that test with flying colors once CS is Quashed against u which means even the Investigation by Police proved that you were innocent. After investigation completes and all material is collected still if the case does not inspire confidence or no case is made out - that's a biggest win.

Rule 2:- If charges have been framed then go in for revision (Charge Sheet Rules) .

Rule 3:- Before framing of charges you have other options also viz., to apply for discharge u/s 239 for all your relatives. And also option to file counter case u/s 211, 506 & 511. This counter case will mean that one sword will hang on your opp party’s head & if & whenever the case is proved to be false then that sword will fall on your opp party & name of this sword is JAIL or CONVICTION. I wil write a separate blog for this counter tactic asap. Let’s concentrate to CS here.

Rule 4:- Quashing of Chargesheet u/s 482 is done after court presents the chargesheet and before charges are framed and trial is underway. The rules for quashing are the same as were laid down in Bhajan Lal Versus State of Haryana which were subsequently M/s Zhandu Pharmaceuticals & many other cases.

Rule 5:- If Quashing is rejected then it won’t harm your case but if certain negative observations are marked then that might hurt your case. NOTE:- If any derogatory remarks are written by you which you can prove to be wrong legally then of course Criminal Defamation can be filed against any authority which writes derogatory remarks on u.

Rule 6:- Whenever u file for Quashing then do also mention one additional prayer for speedy trial (expedient trial) to dispose of the matter within certain period (For 498A and others it should be 6 months; Please refer Sec. 21-B of Hindu Marriage Act / 40-B Of Special Marriage Act whichever is applicable) as facing lengthy trial deprives personal liberty as per Article 21 of Indian Constitution. so that in case quashing is rejected then at least this prayer of yours will help you get speedy justice.

Rule7:- CS QUASH success can be achieved if investigation can be discredited by citing some inherent error or malpractice in the investigation process – You need to prove the malafide intent of the police authorities to implicate you.

Rules (General):- On completion of investigation if IO finds sufficient materials to prosecute the accused, files CS before the court. After that court takes cognizance & sends accused to trial. If there is an inordinate delay in filing CS say 2 or 3 years from date of FIR then u can ask the IO to give u discharge certificate.  


An accused person can pray for quash of the FIR or Chargesheet filed against him/her before the Hon'ble State High Court under section 482 of the Cr.P.C which gives inherent powers to the Court.

The Hon'ble Supreme Court of India (in 1992 AIR 604) has laid down seven (07) grounds. Such power to quashed FIR can be exercised

1.      where the allegations made in the First Information Report or the complaint, even if they are taken at their face value and accepted in their entirety do not prima facie constitute any offence or make out a case against the accused;
2.      where the allegations in the First Information Report and other materials, if any, accompanying the F.I.R. do not disclose a cognizable offence, justifying an investigation by police officers under Section 156(1) of the Code except under an order of a Magistrate within the purview of Section 155(2) of the Code;
3.      where the uncontroverted allegations made in the FIR or ’complaint and the evidence collected in support of the same do not disclose the commission of any offence and make out a case against the accused;
4.      where the allegations in the FIR do not constitute a cognizable offence but constitute only a non-cognizable offence, no investigation is permitted by a police officer without an order of a Magistrate as contemplated under Section 155(2) of the Code;
5.      where the allegations made in the FIR or complaint are so absurd and inherently improbable on the basis of which no prudent person can ever reach a just conclusion that there is sufficient ground for proceeding against the accused;
6.      where there is an express legal bar engrafted in any of the provisions of the Code or the concerned Act (under which a criminal proceeding is instituted) to the institution and continuance of the proceedings and/or where there is a specific provision in the Code or the concerned Act, providing efficacious redress for the grievance of the aggrieved party;
7.      where a criminal proceeding is manifestly attended with mala fide and/or where the proceeding is maliciously instituted with an ulterior motive for wreaking vengeance on the accused and with a view to spite him due to private and personal grudge.

Quash is effective for co-accused person(s) who happen to be distant relatives with permanent abode in different jurisdiction altogether.
Hon'ble Supreme Court judgement in the case of Preeti Gupta & Anr. Vs. State of Jharkhand can be relied to such effect.

However, track record of State HC for quash in matters of crime against women needs to be studied and considered before arriving at the decision to go for Quash.

Quash is expensive, time consuming and uncertain. It is invariably never granted for the prime accused who anyways have to end up in the trial.

Quash of Chargesheet is more or less a futile exercise for reasons quite similar to why discharge is ineffective. As soon as chargesheet is submitted in any case and thereafter cognizance is taken or may be not yet taken, it atleast establishes that post investigation, enough material has been found against the accused persons to prosecute.
In that case, the court is reluctant to quash the chargesheet against the accused persons and insists on trial and henceforth makes such order.

However, exceptions do exist and success can be achieved if investigation can be discredited by citing some inherent error or malpractice in the investigation process.
