Law of Challan/ Police Report U/s 173CrPC

Police reports are the record of the process and outcome of a police investigation. In particular, police reports document the evidence collected by the police, the opinion of the police and the police decision to charge a particular person on the basis of the available evidence. Police reports are passed on to the prosecutor so that he may review them and formulate his opinion with regard to the same. A review is necessary because a prosecutor is under a duty not to initiate a prosecution or to stop a prosecution where an impartial investigation shows the charge to be unfounded.
