Sanjay Bhandari vs State (Nct Of Delhi) on 31 July, 2018

2. The fulcrum of the challenge to the said order is based on the
premise that the petitioner has not been accused of any of the offences
mentioned in Section 82(4) of the Criminal procedure Code, 1973
(hereinafter referred to as Cr.P.C.) and, thus, it is contended that
declaration of the petitioner as a proclaimed offender is unwarranted.

It is contended that even if the proceedings under Section 82(1) to
82(3) of Cr.P.C. is completed qua the petitioner, the petitioner could
not be declared as a proclaimed offender as he is not accused of any
offences mentioned under Section 82(4) Cr.P.C. Reliance is placed on
the decision of the Rajasthan High Court in Rishabh Sethi vs. State of
Rajasthan, judgment dated 08.03.2018 in S.B. Crl.Misc.(Petition)
No.5767/2017.
