Classification of charge sheet quash petition

(Querist) 02 October 2017 This query is : Resolved 
Can a petition filed in the High Court under CRL.O.P. to quash a charge sheet filed by the police in the Magistrate court be called as Writ Petition ? One of the respondent to defend herself has said so in her affidavit. So wants to get clarification on this.
Thanks & Regards

Yeah! You file a criminal writ petition of certiorari to quash the charge the police charge sheet in the Magistrate court on various grounds such as illegal,baseless, error apparent on the face of the record, without substance, undue delay in filing the chargesheet etc and get the charge sheet filed by the police quashed on false and flimsy and vexatious grounds. Joining the police and Magistrate as opposite parties to the writ.
