The Allahabad High Court on Monday held that an informant who feels that a proper or fair investigation is not being done by the investigating officer may approach the Magistrate for relief by moving an application under Section 156(3), CrPC, instead of invoking the writ jurisdiction of the High Court under Article 226 of the Constitution of India.
