My wife has filed a DV case in Delhi against me (R1) and my parents (R2 and R3). We are planning to fight the case as PIPs. Is there any rule which allows me to represent my parents?
I am aware of Rule 37 in the ANDHRA PRADESH CRIMINAL RULES OF PRACTICE AND CIRCULAR ORDERS, 1990 (rule quoted below from page 14 of attached). Is there a similar rule for civil cases in Delhi? If so, can someone direct me to the rule/law?
One of the accused may be permitted to represent the other: -
Criminal Courts may in cases where there are more accused than one, permit anyone of them to be authorized by any other to represent that other in any Criminal Proceeding; but the authorisation shall be in writing and shall contain the signature of the person giving it and shall be filled in Court.
