Arun Khanna (prop)     13 October 2011

Criminal

 

An  FIR was registered on my complaint and police filled  it’s  report u/s 173(2). I applied for the full copy of file in court and on receipt of certified copy I found that the police has not filed the statements taken u/s 161 of witnesses and alleged in the court file.

 

In the meantime I inspected the vigilance file of police in which I found that the I.O has made additions  in the statement of witnesses by adding a line which is quite apparent that the line has been added after recording statements.

 

Pl. Advise:

 

1.      What should I do as regard tempering of statements is concerned and what action should I take against the I.O to bring the matter in the eyes of law?

 

2.      How to get the certified copy 161 statements from the court?

Dear Arun

as your query

if you think that the IO tempering the statement  then the question is how to prove it. if you have any proof

secondly you can applied for certified copy of 161 as you filed earliar.

Let the witness say the same in court, then the IO can be prosecuted by the Magistrate for the same,
