This is not because the lawyer wants to accompany the accused as a plesant stroll to the police station, but because the accused is given the right by the Constitution and the laws, to be defended by a lawyer not only inside the court but the moment he is arrayed as accused in criminal case.This rigtht follows the accused in police custody and that is the lawyer.
Mr. NK Assumi, I assume that you are my old friend from the day when you were prosecutor in a court martial proceedings against a Assam Rifle constable. I wud be delighted if you kindly quote the article of our constitution where lawyer is permitted to accompany the.......at the police station.
Article 22 of the Constitution of India and those sections 303 and 304 of the CrPc. Here the word acompany the criminal means to defend the criminal from the momebnt he is arrested and not necessarily inside the bars of the Police. Yes, Mr.Om Prakash, see my PM.
