Deposition by attorney in complaint u/s 420 ipc

Can an attorney holder file a complaint u/s 420 ipc

And can the attorney holder also depose in place of the complaint in the court?

will such depostion be valid?

If any case law is there i will appreciate if the same is also shared

I don't think an attorney holder can replace a complainant in such complainant's deposition as the role of a Complainant is of a very personal nature and substituting such person can materially affect the case.

Attorney holder can not depose on behalf of complainant.

No ! That for issuance of process under Section 200 CrPC the complainant in person ought to have been examined in person by the Ld. Magistrate empowered to taken cognizance.
