Dear Shiv,


Answer of both the queries you have is positive a Police officer can be a complainant as well as the investigation officer. The situation only arises where there is no complainant of an offence and Police Officer heads up to file the intial complaint and then further proceed with invetigation.

Thank You,

With Warm Regards,

Dear Sir,

In this case as I told the police has ignored the complaint of Victim, even not shown it on court file, thease facts admitted by IO in cross, even police dont have any knowledge of offence before the complaint by victim , In such cercumstances not registering the complaint of complainant in FIR u/s 154 (1) and filing a FIR under said section of CrPC by its own will is not the violation of sec 154 and if such FIR is a legal one ?

Help Please

With Regards
