Do accused need to attend on judgement day in 498a case?

Do accused need to attend on judgement day in 498A case?

On behalf of client a advocate presence is enough?

All the trial proceedings are completed.

1. Accused presence if mandatory, when judge /magistrate pronounces his oral orders.  IF order is in adverse of the accused, THEN the accused has to be arrested immediately.

There's no law that an Accused or, for that matter, their Counsel should be present on the day of judgment,      It's up to the Magistrate to, or not to, pronounce judgment without having the Accused up.     The Magistrate can't issue either Summons or Warrant for their appearance.   He must pronounce judgment after a few adjournments whether the Accused is present or absent.      If absent, Warrant is issued.

It's the headache of the police to trace the Accused and make them reap.
