Complaintant complaint after sanction of agri.subsidy and getting subcidy amount by bank account .prima fecie matter looks to trap officer in personal and political interest

There must be other evidences which prove him taking some benefit from the complainant. Otherwise just on statement of complainant it is not possible.

Sudhir Kumar, Advocate (Advocate)     15 March 2023

In this case the person  has already been convicted. 


You appear to be panning to argue in appeal that the trapping officer had personal / political interest May be possible.


But :-


1.    Whether there was any recovery.

2.    Whether phenolphthalein test conducted property.

3.    Whether shadow witnesses testified.

4.    Whether such political / personal interests argued in the trial court, if so what was finding of the court on the same.

Then what are going to be your argument before High Court.  you have not replied :-


"4. Whether such political / personal interests argued in the trial court, if so what was finding of the court on the same."

Yes. Complaintant  was at that time concern with political interest and that pointed to trial court,  court didn't  any findings  on the matter .
