It's hardly matter that one of the complainants died , due to death of one complainant proceedings of case does not vitiate or invalidate.proceedings of case will be continue and other complainants may prove the charges.

That apsect could be of advantage to the accused. Still then, the trial has to be taken to its logical conclusion. So also, the death of the main complainant gives no cause to seek discharge o move a petition to quash the proceddings.

there will be other witnessess as well.  Are they alive,

As per your query, let me tell you that, if the bribe was paid by the complainant in presence of some other witnesses. The fact of payment of bribe can be proved by examining the other eye witnesses. If the bribe was paid in cash and same notes were recovered from the accused it can be proved that the bribe was paid.

Hope it helps!

In order to answer your query, it is best to know the stage which the case is at.  Since trail of vigilance cases are considered to be carried out as speed trials and the Complainant was only one of the seven, his demise does not have an affect on the trial. Moreover, the only advantage it poses is that the accused does not have to corroborate the deceased person's statement as he is no longer available to give evidence.

Therefore, the trial will continue without any affect.
