Registration of FIR is mandatory under Section 154 of the Code, if the information discloses commission of a cognizable offence and no preliminary inquiry is permissible in such a situation, if the information received does not disclose a cognizable offence but indicates the necessity for an inquiry, a preliminary inquiry may be conducted only to ascertain whether cognizable offence is disclosed or not.


The word ‘evidence’ in Section 319 Cr. P.C. has to be broadly understood and not literally i.e. as evidence brought during a trial. Person not named in the FIR or a person though named in the FIR but has not  been chargesheeted or a person who has been discharged can be summoned under Section 319 Cr. P.C. provided from the  evidence it appears that such person can be tried along with the accused already facing trial. However, in so far as an accused who has been discharged is concerned the requirement of Section 300 and 398 Cr.P.C. has to be complied with before he can be summoned afresh.
