The accused has the right to be given a copy of the complaint made against him. The IO is under an obligation to furnish the same to him as it is not possible for the accused to consult a lawyer for legal advice unless he is in possession of the complaint. The accused may write to the Commissioner of Police disclosing the refusal of the concerned officer to furnish a copy of the complaint. Alternatively, he may take recourse to RTI Act to obtain the copy.
