Title: Can the case be suspended if the Police fails to file a chargesheet?
Post by: brianalmeida22 on July 18, 2017, 09:18:45 PM
Hello,
I was wrongly accused with section 295A of the IPC on the grounds of hurting religious sentiments, in the month of April.
It has been 90 days and the police has not yet filed a chargesheet, can the case be closed on the basis of lack of evidence.
Please help and advise me according to what you think would be best in this case.

Dear Sir,

Sometimes there is delay in filing the charge sheet, but it may filed at subsequent dates. It cannot become a grounds for closing the case but certainly inordinate delay will. If there is no evidence found against you during the investigation then police may close the case against you. rather than filing charge sheet, they may also filed closure report.

Regards,

Dear Sir,

The period of 90 days comes into play only when the accused is in custody and case law is as follows:
