Delay in investigation

Will delay in investigation be an advantage for the accused? If proof is with someone else and they are not showing it and just dragging the case, what are my remedies? Can I prove that their entire story is fabricated?

Expert Advice


Your questions are very vague and need more detail for accurate answers. I assume that there's undue delay in filing of Chargesheet. Under relevant provisions of the Cr.P.C. you may move the Trial Court for discharge and/or expediting the trial. I would also recommend filing an RTI seeking information as to the progress of investigation. Showing malicious intention and proving the prosecution/original complainant's story as fabricated can be done only at the stage of evidence/cross. This follows only once Trial begins.
