Can io punished for unnecessary filling of cs

Can IO held responsible and punished for unnecessary filling of CS and not obtaining Section 157 CrPc (foreclose the matter) or Section 173 CrPc. seeking closure of the matter due to not having sufficient evidence to proceed. Because it increasing burden on judiciary and keeping innocent citizens in loop of long run of criminal trials.

Experts Plz give your opinions.

Hi It is although the very purpose of investigation to acertain the facts and submit a Charge-Sheet or Closure-Report. But unfortunately courts never take a stern view of useless charge-sheets even when they know that case is false. So I/Os conventionally file charge-sheet even if the case is not made out. There is immense need to change the law and bring changes which are apt for today's generation. But on date, nothing much you can do regarding an I/O filing CS in place of Closure-Report. //peace /Saurabh..V
