The High Court of Bombay at Goa has upheld the judgment and order of acquittal passed by a trial court in a Ponda murder case.

On March 27, 2011, police had received a phone call that a person was lying dead in a pool of blood in Ponda and therefore, immediately they rushed to the site and found one unknown male person lying in front of a gate of a park. A native of Orissa Mohan Biswal was arrested in connection with the murder. However, a trial court had acquitted the accused.

The High Court observed, “We find that findings arrived at by the trial court in the impugned judgment and order of acquittal are proper and correct wherein there is neither any manifest illegality or perversity which would require any interference in the appeal. It is clear that even if two views are possible while appreciating the evidence adduced in the trial court and the view taken by the trial court is a plausible one, normally the Appellate Court should not interfere in the order of acquittal. Thus, we find no substance in this appeal which does not warrant interference in the impugned judgment and order of acquittal passed by the trial court.”
