Nature of grievance

Where a person is aggrieved by the Summons issued by the Magistrates Court on a Complaint filed before him, he may prefer a Revision Application challenging the issuance of such Summons mainly on the premise that there were no sufficient grounds to launch criminal prosecution against him.

The High Court or any Sessions Judge in their Revisional powers, may call for and examine the record of any proceeding before any inferior Criminal Court situate within its or his local jurisdiction, for the purpose of satisfying itself or himself as to the correctness, legality or propriety of any finding, sentence or order, recorded or passed, and as to the regularity of any proceedings of such inferior Court
