• Validity of the case

Does any case has validity period ? I mean a victim can file FIR against accused after years.

For ex..  The incident happened in 2000  . on that situation didn't demand to file FIR against accused or not in a situation to file a complaint but that incident still running in his mind... can he file FIR now ?

The incident could be Dowry case/ Land dispute/ Fradulent cases/ Physical humiliation....

If he files FIR after 14 years it would not stand on legs for long in court. Move to HC for quashing thereof.

She may file the case for dowry harassment even now but she will have to offer explanation for filing it belatedly.
