At the preliminary stage of the investigtion it is immaterial whether it is registered under section 326 of 307. It will only be decided at the time final charge sheet made by the police. During the investigation it may come to light that the intention of the offender was to cause such injury which in ordinary course could have cause certain death at that time it can be changed to section 307 . In cases it is seen that initially it is resigtered under 307 and latter it comes to be under 326 at the final charge sheet. If the victim feel that the case is not registered under the appropriate sections they can approach the CJM with a protest petition.
