My friend's criminal case trial is proceesinf in Magistrate's Court. Charges are for impersonation, forgery, extortion through cyber crime. There are many nitty gritty and small facts which are known by accused and he may instantly remember during the proceeding of the trial. Judge asked to move through advocate already engaged. But advocate may not remember small matters which the accused can remember if complainant say some lies before court. Accused advocate can not fight as he is unaware of such incidents whether true or false. Can the accused argue and cross examine complainant and witnesses alongwith his own advocate to bring facts before the trial court ?
If so what are the provisions in the Act and how it is to be moved in the court ?
Accused is innocent but want to prove his innocense. The special pp is lying always and creating stories to strengthen his case. He never submitted any application but the complainant is not attending court on the plea that he is working abroad which is totally false. Court do not want to listen to the oral submission of accused drawing notice to the false statement of the special pp regardin complainant's working at abroad and asked accused to represent only thrugh his advocate.
Please properly guide to save an innocent person
