A relative of mine is planning to file a case against his neighbor. His neighbor is aware of that. For the last several weeks, the relative is noticing that whenever he throws something like an ice cream cup or a chocolate bar wrapper (for instance, Dairy Milk wrapper), the neighbor picks that up and takes it home. The items obviously contain my relative's fingerprint. The neighbor is neither illiterate nor poor. In what ways can these be misused by the neighbor?
Strange never heard of anything like dis. That neibor may b having some obsession behaviour or some psychological problem nd u may be wrogly understanding him or ur own observations may not be correct.
Neighbor picks up an item with my relative's fingerprints using a wrapper/cloth so that the item does not get his own fingerprints. He bribes a police officer to place that item in a crime scene. The neighbor tips the police saying that he saw that my relative was present at the crime scene/ my relative committed the crime. Cops recover the item from the crime scene and find my relative's fingerprints on it. He gets arrested.
This might sound like a long shot but it is not impossible.
What kind of defense strategies can be used in such situations?

He can wear gloves at all times.
You have to understand that nothing is too far in a criminal's twisted mind. I see you are taking the matter lightly and joking about the entire issue. In the process, you are avoiding the question. I would appreciate if you could add real value to the discussion. What has been mentioned is just a part of an elaborate plot. There are strong reasons behind such guesses.
