Appearence of falsely accused in a magistrates complaint
(Querist) 24 July 2021
This query is : Resolved
Hello, I am previously a witness in a criminal cases u/S 420/ 120b instituted at Magistrates Court JMFC. 6 months down the line the accused in that case having been granted Anticipatory bail by ADJ has now made up a bogus case under Section 406/420/120 which he has filed at Magistrates JMFC as a counter blast
My question: 1) Can i appear before Magistrates before Cognizance is taken so as to give my version of events? 2 ) can i appear before magistrates after cognizance is taken and without going for ABP as i am 100% innocent and can validate that.
If the answer is yes please advise what i can do If the answer is no surely its a travesty of justice that i have to go through the ABP process spend money just to prove a bogus case at trial.
