complaint can be given by any person. without examining the real victim if the police filed the charge sheet it is false.

Any body can file a conplaint subject to provisions of section 195 to 199 of Crpc. In your case complaint by a friend of victim does not suffer any infurmity. (How ever at the time of cross examination you have a good question with you and a complaint by third person only always creat a question mark in Judges mind)
