This is with reference to a grave offence of alleged homicide. Charges were framed over a year ago. Prosecution realizes that theirs is an extremely weak case as it has been built upon shaky and fabricated circumstancial evidence. Forensic and Scientific evidence that has been submitted in the court is against them. Hence, Prosecution wish to delay the trial as much as possible to harass and frustrate the accused who are fighting hard for justice by requesting the judge repeatedly for a speedy trial.
So far, the prosecution has succeeded in their delaying tactics as some Asst. Public Prosecutor appears on the date of hearing and requests an adjournment stating that another Public Prosecutor is being appointed etc etc. At every date of hearing, a different Asst. Public Prosecutor who has been mandated to manage that particular day appears !!! The judge has been very sharp in his comments against the delaying tactics but has never taken any action. As there is no designated Public Prosecutor, summons for list of witnesses is not being issued and the schedule for witness examination is not being fixed.
Apart from going to the High Court, is there any procedure/process that can be of help ??
