In such cases, the presumption of innocence in favor of the accused would stand strengthened and fortified and the prosecution will have an even greater responsibility to reverse the presumption.

The Supreme Court on Friday held that in cases of reversal of acquittal, where two views are possible, the view which favors the accused has to be adopted [Roopwanti v. State of Haryana and Others].
