Under Section 157 (2) Cr PC officer in charge of a police station may decide not to proceed with investigation of a cognizable case under sec. 156 (1) cr pc, if he does not deem it fit for investigation. Of course he has to record reasons for the same. Can above recourse is also available to the OIC in a FIR which has been registered on orders of a magistrate u/s 156(3) Cr PC? Is there any supreme court ruling on this?
