Revision against order of investigation in complaint under Section 156(3) Cr.PC – not maintainable: J&K High Court

Orders for investigation under Section 156(3) of Cr.PC are only ancillary steps in aid of investigation and are clearly interlocutory in nature. Such orders do not infringe upon the valuable rights of the prospective accused and, as such, are not amenable to challenge in criminal revision in view of the bar contained in Section 435 of J&K Cr.P.C which is in pari materia with Section 397 of Central Cr.P.C.
