The public prosecutor in my case turned out to be another moron who hired his position out. Initially the jackass refused to show up in court by taking off on leave and caused unnecessary delays in obtaining bail and then offered not to oppose the bail application for a “consideration”.
This is the reason for this post, the role of the public prosecutor.
I came across this article at this site: http://www.amanpanchayat.org/
The link to the article is here: The Role Of The Public Prosecutor
Here is a link to another article by Vikram Jeet Batra in Indiatogether.
Here is an excerpt:
“Given that prosecution of crimes in conducted by the state on behalf of victims, it is astonishing that the justice system provides little space for the victim. At present the victim’s role is recognised only to the extent that s/he is a prosecution witness. Even here the large number of victim-witnesses turning hostile is testament to the harassment and intimidation they face within the system. Another space where victims can form part of the prosecution process is by appointing a lawyer to assist the prosecution. While the victim’s lawyer has a wider role in the Magistrate’s Courts, this is far reduced in the Sessions Courts where s/he must act under the direction of the public prosecutor.”
