Dear friends,

Question is very clear. a complaint case in which accused is died and not the complainant. Complainant can be substituted but not the accused. Once the accused is dead, the case is abated. It is very clear.

These are the Criminal proceedings and all the Criminal Proceedings are abated when the accused dies during pendency of trial and likewise in 138 Cases, the case would certainly abate and the legal heirs of accused cannot be substituted..
