I am facing a criminal complaint u/s 340 CRPC for making a denial statement in reply to a statement in a plaint in a civil land case. The case is being looked up into by a Senior Civil Judge.
I am due to file my reply to the criminal complaint under 340 CRPC.
I am concerned with whether or not to make pleadings in reply to the above complaint made by the opposite party.
The problem is the original plaint relates to the civil land dispute and the complaint under 340 CRPC is criminal in nature.
Do pleadings form part of the reply u/s 340 CRPC that I make because the original suit is a Civil case?
Kindly clarify me
