Balakrishna case: HC admits revision plea

By Our Legal Correspondent

HYDERABAD, MARCH 7. The High Court today admitted a criminal revision petition against the orders of the Judge of Metropolitan Criminal Courts, Hyderabad, for refusing to take on record a complaint against the witnesses who had turned hostile in the shooting case in which the cine actor, Balakrishna, was the main accused.

Gopalakrishna Kalanidhi, an advocate, filed a complaint with the police seeking action against the witnesses, who alleged that the Metropolitan Magistrate did not correctly record their statements and declarations. The case was dismissed at initial stage by the criminal court concerned and the petitioner filed the revision petition before the High Court. The judge, G. Raghuram, admitted the revision after perusing the grounds raised by the petitioner. The petitioner wondered how the witnesses could make allegations against the Magistrate who recorded the statements and said that this issue should not be let off like this.
