Description
Mankind has migrated from the state of nature towards an elegant society. Crime has become part of civilization process, of course, having its adverse effects on the society. Award of punishment following conviction at a trial in a system wedded to rule of law is the product of cool reflection in the court room after adequate hearing is afforded to the parties, accusations are brought against the accused, the prosecutor is given an opportunity of supporting the charge and the accused is equally given an opportunity of meeting the accusations by establishing his innocence. This is a long but indispensable trial process. The Apex Court of India has recognised the farthest magnitude of crime while appreciating the role of proper and effective investigation in delivering justice. Explaining that speedy trial is the fundamental right of any citizen, the Court in Vakil Prasad case has broadened this view, that this right is applicable not only to the actual proceedings in court but also includes within its sweep the preceding police investigations as well.
Therefore, the Investigating Officer plays a critical role in the entire process. It should not be forgotten that the duty of the investigating officers is not merely to shore up up a prosecution case with such evidence as may enable the court to record a conviction but to bring out the real unvarnished truth. The approach in which police investigations are conducted is of critical importance to the functioning of the Criminal Justice System. Not only serious miscarriage of justice results if the collection of evidence is not properly done, or, if there is any error or malpractice, but successful prosecution of the guilty depends on a scrupulous and cautious search for truth and collection of evidence which is both admissible and probative.
