Once the case is registered and the investigation is complete, the prosecutor will have the power to return the police investigation in case of any objection and ask him to take further evidence to strengthen the case. At the direction of the prosecutor, the police officer will be bound to follow these instructions and in case of non-compliance, he will give reasons in writing. Under the proposed amendment, the courts would have to complete the hearing of any case within 9 months, failing which the relevant High Court would have to state its reasons. Once the reason is accepted by the High Court, a new timeline and time will be fixed. In case of any government difficulty in this regard, the High Court may direct any government agency to remove that obstacle.
