 Latesh @ Dadu Baburao Karlekar v. The State of Maharashtra - Supreme Court Important Judgment 2018 - 

On 30th January, 2018, in the case of Latesh @ Dadu Baburao Karlekar v. The State of Maharashtra [Criminal Appeal No. 1301 of 2015], it was held that “merely because the names of the accused are not stated and their names are not specified in the FIR that may not be a ground to doubt the contents of the FIR and the case of the prosecution cannot be thrown out on this count.”


The Supreme Court observed that “the value to be attached to the FIR depends upon facts and circumstances of each case. When a person gives a statement to the police officer, basing on which the FIR is registered. The capacity of reproducing the things differs from person to person. Some people may have the ability to reproduce the things as it is, some may lack the ability to do so. Some times in the state of shock, they may miss the important details, because people tend to react differently when they come across a violent act.”
