At the time of filing of charge sheet it the duty of IO to direct / compel the accused to be present in the Court and provide a copy of complete set of charge sheet to accused in the court. if the accused do not attend the court, NBWs shall be issued against the accused.

Once the police is filing the charge sheet before the trial court, and after the court takes it on its files, the court will send summons to the accused to appear before it for participating in the trial proceedings as per law. The court will not issue NBW before issuing summons, if the accused remains absent despite receiving summons then the court may issue NBW against the accused.
