The Apex Court calls for an independent conclusion by High Court

While adjudicating CRIMINAL APPEAL NOs. 1278-1279 OF 2010, in the matters of the Hon'ble Supreme Court of India has observed today that "It is the practice of the High Court to be satisfied on the facts as well as the law of the case, that the conviction is right, before it proceeds to confirm that sentence. In other words, the High Court has to come to its own independent conclusion as to the guilt or innocence of the accused, independently of the opinion of the Judge."
