The Supreme Court, asked the Patna High Court, to give reasons to support their conclusion at reaching a judgement of approval or rejection of an appeal. After an appeal and noticing that the High Court had not given any conclusion to the decision that they arrived at, the Supreme Court under s.482 CrpC said:

“Time and again, this Court has emphasized the necessity of giving reasons in support of the conclusion because it is the reason, which indicates the application of mind. It is, therefore, obligatory for the Court to assign the reasons as to why the petition is allowed or rejected, as the case may be.”
