Criminal Procedure Code, 1973 Section 197 - In order to attract the rigor of Section 197 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, it is necessary that the offence alleged against a Government Officer must have some nexus or/and relation with the discharge of his official duties as a Government Officer -  In this case, we do not find it to be so - No sanction Under Section 197 of the Code of Criminal Procedure was obtained by the prosecution for filing the complaint against Respondent No. 2 -  Having regard to the nature of the allegations made by the complainant against Respondent No. 2, who was the Police Officer (SHO) at the relevant time, we are of the view that no prior sanction to prosecute Respondent No. 2 Under Section 197 of the Code of Criminal Procedure was required for filing such complaint - Indian Penal Code, S. 323, 341, 379 and 504.  2019 SCeJ 560
