The update volume 5 of the digest covers case law from 2015 upto 2018.
Earlier 4 volumes of the digest cover case law on Criminal Procedure Codes of 1973 and 1898 and Criminal Trial from 1950 upto 2014.2 This edition comes with an improved arrangement of case law to enable the discovery of all the rulings easily and quickly.
For systematic and convenient research a few sections of CrPC have been treated collectively like Sections 125 to 128 CrPC which deal with a Magistrate’s power to award maintenance, Sections 155 to 159 CrPC, 161 and 162 CrPC which deal with the power and conduct of investigation by Police.
Provisions of CrPC and sub-headings of Criminal Trial are deeply interconnected by a well-planned cross-reference system supported by synopses wherever necessary.
Rulings that could not be placed under the provisions of any particular statute have been placed under the non-statutory topic heading Criminal Trial.
