Adv.Aiyer VLV (Expert) 27 March 2010
suit by itself is not evidence.

however, admissions in depositions under examination-in-chief and cross examinations, documents marked by court could be used as evidence.

civil and criminal proceedings can run parallel. anyone can start first. usually criminal proceedings are faster.

acceptability does not arise on any action enjoined by statute. if police registered FIR, it is initial stage. magistrate having scrutinised that ordering inquiry is when case is valid. if there is no offence in complaint, it could be dismissed by magistrate. police are duty bound to take complaints.
