Nature of grievance

In cases where the Police refuses to register the FIR, or even otherwise, any aggrieved person instead of approaching police for registration of offence, may directly go to concerned Magistrates Court for the registration of offence and investigation.

There are several offences being defined under IPC which are committed in relation to properties, both movable and immovable. Depending upon the nature of acts and omissions attributed and alleged against the person, the applicable section may be invoked against him.

If the person Accused is apparently not directly involved in the alleged offence, but has caused the occurrence of the offence by way of indirect participation in the crime or otherwise, the criminal liability may be fastened upon such persons on the basis of sharing the “common intention” as suggested and defined u/s 34 of IPC; or by way of “abetment” as suggested and defined u/ss 107 to 116 of IPC; or by way of “criminal conspiracy” as suggested and defined u/s 120A of IPC, 1860.
