Under which circumstances the court can discharge accused after framing of charge?
Even though Section 329(2) Cr.P.C. contemplates a discharge, it
is necessary to notice that this expression has been used rather loosely. As
pointed out supra, Section 329 Cr.P.C. operates only at the stage of trial, i.e.,
post the stage of framing charges. Under the Code, provisions to discharge an
accused from the prosecution are available in Sections 227, 239 and 245
