Anti-Corruption Establishment Rules, 1985

Quashment of F.I.R:– Contention that F.I.R. had been registered in violation of Anti-Corruption Establishment Rules 1985–Rules in question, were framed by Executive Authorities and not by the Parliament, thus, those were not mandatory but directory in nature–Where any action was taken even in violation’ of Rules, that would not be sufficient ground for quashment of F.I.R., in as much as, serious allegation has been levelled against petitioner and prima facie case was made out against him, which would require recording of evidence–High Court while exercising powers under Art. 199 of the Constitution cannot stay investigation of case and restrain Investigating Officer to collect evidence
