Even in civil case it plaintiff's case is called prosecution.
prabhakar singh (Expert) 03 October 2011
Mr.Arunagiri !
In our area it is not so.we call plaitiff witness [pw]defendant witness[dw],
the same be understood as prosecution and defense witness also.
Advocate. Arunagiri (Expert) 03 October 2011

Thanks for updating my knowledge.

In civil cases when it is dismissed for default, the court will record as "dismissed for non prosecution".

So, prosecution is not meant only for criminal cases.

However the practical usage may differ in many courts.

I have not taken a different stand of Mr.Singh, He is perfectly correct. I just had added in inputs.

conventionally here they do order "dismissed in default".
i did not update you i simply said things are same but conventions are different and they create association,then a new word though with same meaning creates discomfort just because of addiction.

In West Bengal also it is called Prosecution Witness be it civil or criminal whatever case.
