Query on dropping of evidence in criminal case

Dear Legal Team,

In a 307 case trial, eye witness was present twice before the court to give his evidence, on both the occassions accused and their cousel prayed for time. On 3rd occassion both accused and their counsel were absent so judge cancelled their bail and asked witness to come after serving of summons. On all the occassions witness put his signature in order sheet. After that poilce man did not serve the summons to said witness and after that NBW was issued, policeman did not issue that NBW too. Public Prosecutor asked Judge to drop the said witness. And Judge dropped that witness. Now what is the next step to be followed ? And what if the trial court doesnot allow that witness to give his evidence. Pls advice.

You are accused or representing accused? If so, it is in your benefit, do not get worried. 

Consult another local senior/prudent lawyer for proper appreciation of facts and circumstances and guidence.
