I have some very specific questions in 498A case end to end process. Below are my questions.
1) What is a maximum time limit a police can hold on to prepare final report/charge sheet after F.I.R is filed ? Again, if they really delaying to file charge sheet apart from police investigation what could be the possible/general reasons they could cause delay?
2) Importantly, what would be accused position during this whole process of F.I.R to Charge sheet process getting delayed ( for whatever reasons ) assuming regular bail is granted or delayed?
3) What are possible legally ideal options from accused side to ensure charge sheet is filed after F.I.R. and case is moved to court for trail to defend ?
4)Now, again even if case is moved to court room, I heard quite surprising statement that "the whole process could be delayed by the complaint endlessly before it is getting started in-first place and the accused have to still attend the summons until then? is that true ? If yes, is there an ideal alternative way with which we can speed up the whole trail process ?
If any of my above questions does not make sense, please have patience to respond to me so that I can ask my questions again. Thanks in advance.
