Shafiya Khan @ Shakuntala Prajapati v. State of U.P.

Criminal Procedure Code, 1973 -Section 482 – Power of quashing of criminal proceedings should be exercised very sparingly and with circumspection and that too in rarest of the rare cases and it was not justified for the Court in embarking upon an enquiry as to the reliability or genuineness or otherwise of the allegations made in the FIR or the complaint and that the inherent powers do not confer any arbitrary jurisdiction on the Court to act according to its whims and fancies. JT 2022 (2) SC 112
