Sultana Begum V/s. state Of Punjab &Ors (2015) 16 SCC 212

The instant case came up after the High Court quashed the criminal charges and proceedings against the accused and the moot point was whether the criminal proceedings can be quashed in entirety or only partial correction can be made. The Hon’ble court held that quashing of orders of framing charges is correct but quashing the proceedings before the trial Judge by the High Court is incorrect. The high court ought to have remanded back the case to the trial judge with a direction to examine the matter afresh in accordance with law with regard to framing of charge.
