Scope of section 332/353

What is a scope of Section 332/353 ?

lawyers are supposed to be the officers of the court. We all know it.

Constitution has awarded lawyers the dignity at par with person sitting on the seat of Magistrate.

Magistrate & lawyers in court, both, comes under the definition of Public Servant under IPC.

Can any court employee file FIR against the lawyer ? How long shall it stand ?

Can any public servant lodge FIR against another public servant under this section working at the same dignified position in the same public office ?

Hon'ble Members,


I need judgement relating to the same.

section -332 of IPC is bailable 

sectin-353- of IPC is cognigible and hence  bail may be granted 

for sectin -353- you or one can apply for anticepatory bail

Can one public servant lodge FIR against another public servant using section 323,332,353 IPC who are working on the same designation on the same department ?

a court employee is purely a public servant. He receives salary from the government.

If any person obstructs him during the discharge of public duty he can defenitely file a case undere section 353 ipc.

Peshkaar of the court filed false FIR against the Advocate.

What defenses as an advocate are available with Advocate ?

Thanks in advance member.

Without knowing the allegations & FIR in detail, it is very hard to evoke anything.
