Justice Sanjay Kumar Gupta further observed that this court while exercising the power under revision, cannot stifle the legitimate prosecution. This is a supervisory power vested in High Court to correct illegality or incorrectness in the order of subordinate court. High Court cannot re-examine evidence in detail to see as to whether charge for alleged offence is made put or not.
With these observations High Court dismissed the petition and vacated the interm stay.
