Section 195(1) in The Code Of Criminal Procedure, 1973 says as under
(1) No Court shall take cognizance-
(a) (i) of any offence punishable under sections 172 to 188 (both inclusive) of the Indian Penal Code (45 of 1860 ), or
(ii) of any abetment of, or attempt to commit, such offence, or
(iii) of any criminal conspiracy to commit such offence, except on the complaint in writing of the public servant concerned or of some other public servant to whom he is administratively subordinate;
Question 1: If the concerned Public Servant is not aware of the commitment of such an offence, and a member of the Public is aware how should he make that Public Servant aware of such an offence?
Question 2 : Since the member of the Public cannot himself file a complaint under the above Sections can he resort to requesting the Public Servant to File a complaint?
Question 3 : What if the Public Servant concerned even after knowledge of the facts constituting the offence does not file a complaint?
