Straight, Offg. C.J.
1. I am glad that the learned Judge has reported this case, because it has afforded me an opportunity of considering my ruling in the case of Queen-Empress v. Radha Kishan I.L.R. 5 All. 36. Upon further consideration I have come to the conclusion that the latter portion of my judgment in that case was erroneous, and that a prosecution under Section 182 of the Penal Code may be instituted by a private person, provided that he first obtains the sanction of the public officer to whom the false information was given, or of his official superior. I am induced to adopt this altered view upon closer consideration of Section 195 of the Criminal Procedure Code, where a distinction is drawn between 'sanction' and 'complaint' and I think that by the use of the former word it was contemplated that a prosecution may emanate from some person other than the officer interested. Though I take this view of the matter now, it would in no way have altered the order I made in Queen-Empress v. Radha Kishan I.L.R. 5 All. 36 had I held it when that was passed, as, in my opinion, when a specific false charge is made, as in that case, the proper section for proceedings to be adopted under is Section 211. With these remarks the record may be returned.
