||DEAR ALL MEMBERS,
2 YEARS AGO MY NEIGBOUR FAMILY TRAPPED ME UNDER CASE OF IPC 325 WITH THE HELP OF POLICE OFFICER. IT IS TOTALLY FAKE CASE, FINALLY I WON THE CASE BUT, I LOST MY VALUABLE TIME + MONEY IN THIS CASE.
MY QUASTION TO ALL OF U IS , SHALL I FILE DEFAMATION (IPC 499 & IPC 500), MALICIOUS PROSECUTION (IPC 182)OR FORGERY(IPC 464) CASE AGAINST POLICE OFFICER?
AWAITING FOR YOUR VALUABLE REPLY,
THANKS IN ADVANCE
It all depends on what evidence you have with you to support your allegations in court of law. If you have evidence against police officer then it may be possible to file charges against police officer under Sections 166, 167 IPC and various other Sections of IPC. Joining hands with the complainant cannot not be called the "official duty" of any police officer. Having said this, it all depends on the evidence you have with you to support your allegations. It is better to tread cautiously than making some allegations against which you have no strong evidence.
Depending upon the evidence with you, probably many cases against your neighbor might be possible like Section 182 of IPC, many provisions under Chapter XI of IPC related to giving false evidence and offenses related to public justice besides 464, 499 and 500 IPC.
In short you need to sit and talk with an experienced advocate dealing with criminal law and share the facts in detail.
