Manoj Kumar Sharma & Ors. v. State of Chhattisgarh & Anr

Enquiry under S. 174 Cr.P.C. entirely distinct from investigation envisaged in S. 157. The operative part of the judgment reads as under:- Sections 174 and 175 of the Code afford a complete Code in itself for the purpose of "Inquiries" in cases of accidental or suspicious deaths and are entirely distinct from the "investigation" under Section 157 of the Code wherein if an officer in- charge of a police station has reason to suspect the commission of an offence which he is empowered to investigate, he shall proceed in person to the spot to investigate the facts and circumstances of the case. In the case on hand, an inquiry under Section 174 of the Code was convened initially in order to ascertain whether the death is natural or unnatural.
