In State of Maharashtra v. Pollonji Darabshaw Daruwalla MANU/SC/0294/1987 : AIR 1988 SC 88 this Court held as under:
...on a consideration of the matter it cannot be said that there is no disproportion or even a sizeable disproportion.... There are also other possible errors in the calculations in regard to point (c). The finding becomes inescapable that the assets were in excess of the known sources of income. But on the question whether the extent of the disproportion is such as to justify a conviction for criminal misconduct...., a somewhat liberal view requires to be taken of what proportion of assets in excess of the known sources of income constitutes "disproportion" for purposes of Section 5(1)(e) of the Act.
