In case your mother is an acused, you need to file petition u/s 317 of cr.pc.

Is your mother the accused? if so, the summons could be for examination under Section 313 CrPC.

No she is the co-compliant. She needs to come for evidence and cross examination.

P. Venu (Advocate)     27 November 2022

She needs to attend the Court as when summons is served. If staying in far away place, Commission could be got issued in terms of Section 284 CrPC.

Yes as very rightly observed, she can invoke section 284 of crpc through the PP.
