Prosecution evidence was unanimous and satisfactory-Recover of 2200 grams of “Charas” from the possession of accused was proved-Technicalities and minor contradictions in evidence in such cases were to be ignored and the court had to consider the entire material on record as a whole-Recovered “Charas” being in the form of strips, the recovery official was duty bound to take out sample from each and every strip for sending the dame to the chemical Examiner which was not done and the accused thus would be liable for being in possession only of 200 grams of “charas” sent to Chemical Examiner whose report in that regard was positive-Conviction of accused under S.9(c) of the Control of Narcotic Substances Act, 1997 was altered to S.9(b) of the said Act in circumstances and this sentence was substantially reduced accordingly.
