New Delhi: A Delhi court has asked a man to lead pre-summoning evidence in support of his allegation against six Delhi Police officials for beating him in custody while dismissing his plea for registration of FIR.

Additional Sessions Judge Manoj Jain said, “I rather strongly feel that there is every likelihood that if registration of FIR is ordered, it might culminate in ‘cancellation report' which would frustrate the purpose of none other than revisionist.”

“Undoubtedly, any police official is not permitted to take law in his own hands and cannot encroach upon the liberty of any citizen without any reasonable cause,” the court said.

The judge while dismissing the criminal revision petition filed by the Malviya Nagar resident Rajbir Singh against the trial court order which had also refused to order FIR against the erring police officials assured him saying, “Court would, naturally, take requisite action in terms of the pre-summoning evidence to be led before it by the complainant.”
