Advocate visiting Police station won't look nice, perhaps it could be taken advantage to level the allegation that the Advocate trying to pressurise the police to do favour to his client.

Dear Sir,
Yes, but both police people and advocate must maintain harmony.

During the investigation of a crime, the advocate has no specific role to play in the police station in regard to his client. His duty is in the court and nowhere else. This is what a court order of the Kerala High Court stated when some issues arise between the police and the advocate in the past. Since then, the old practice of advocate visiting the police station as a matter right in order to help his client has come to a close.

Investigation is a solemn duty of the executive wing of the government - the Police - and even the court has no much say in the process of investigation unless something goes wrong in the process.
