It is happened in our state also. Election announced and police started filing a case against the persons who were involved in the criminal actitivities. Even policy have ordered the persons against whom who were acquitted by more than 10 years to appear before the Tahasildar( Executive Magistrate) who are charged u/ 107, 110 of the Cr.P.C. Police people to show their statstics they file false cases under these sections. Ex. Magistratie will have to issue a notice to the respondants only after the receipt of the police, but at the time of election without notice so many persons had to appeared before the Taluka Magistrate.
these sections are absolutely rubbish, without any reasons police people files a case .But there is no way we have to challenge it. It is only an harrashment to the public by the people, some times innocent persons will suffer for their no fault.
