What can I do Sir, Give your valued advise to me

Answer 1

Section 91 of the Criminal Procedure Code, provides for Summons to produce documents or a thing which might help the court to arrive at a decision regarding a matter. Section 160 of the Code provides for attendance of a witness by the inspector. Since you have received summons regarding the criminal proceedings it would be in your best interest to cooperate with the authorities. It might create difficulties for you and arise unnecessary suspicion if you show resistance at this stage.
