Section 173(8) in The Code Of Criminal Procedure, 1973
(8) Nothing in this section shall be deemed to preclude further investigation in respect of an offence after a report under sub- section (2) has been forwarded to the Magistrate and, where upon such investigation, the officer in charge of the police station obtains further evidence, oral or documentary, he shall forward to the Magistrate a further report or reports regarding such evidence in the form prescribed; and the provisions of sub- sections (2) to (6) shall, as far as may be, apply in relation to such report or reports as they apply in relation to a report forwarded under sub- section (2).
Ok, then what about this 173(8)crpc sir after 173(2)Crpc chargesheet.
Can an accused submit new evidence before the police officer and requests him to submit that evidence before magistrate in the prescribed form?
If the IO not forwarded the evidence to magistrate court then can accused file a petition in court attaching the evidence to that petition making a pray to hon'ble judge to direct the IO to consider the evidence and to submit under "supplementary chargesheet" , if the evidence has merits to do so?
has anybody tried like this?
