Law and coherent social order are an indispensable part of every civilized and democratic society. Criminal law serves the task of defining delinquent human behavior and laying down its essential elements. The substantive criminal law cannot achieve its objectives without the support of the Code of Criminal Procedure which provides the apparatus that would ensure the maintenance of social order that is just, fair and equitable to all. Code of Criminal Procedure provides the registration of a criminal offence. The investigation scheme and various functionaries are being identified with their respective roles in the scheme of Cr.P.C. More so, this branch of law operationalizes the substantive criminal law by providing for schematic criminal trial including stages wherein evidence should be lead.
