What are criminal cases?
According to the Indian Penal Code, 1860, a criminal offence is when a person voluntarily commits an act prohibited by law. Action alone does not constitute guilt; it is only considered an offence when accompanied by a guilty mind.
The legal maxim ‘actus non facitreum, nisi mens sit rea’ means that both the guilty act and the guilty mind must be present for an action to be considered a criminal offence. When police officials lodge, a criminal offence and the same offence moves to court is called a criminal case.
The Criminal Procedure Code of 1973 divides criminal offences into four categories:
- Non Cognizable
Under Indian law, different offences have different procedural treatments.
Types of criminal cases
The code of criminal procedure, which governs the procedure for trying criminal offences in the Indian justice system, divides criminal offences into the following categories:
Section 2 (a) of the Code of Criminal Procedure defines these types of criminal offences as those listed in the first schedule of the code. Bailable crimes are punishable by imprisonment for less than three years or a simple fine only.
Bailable offences have an unrestricted right to bail under the criminal procedure code, so anyone arrested without a warrant for a bailable offence has an absolute right to be released on bail if they are willing to pay the bail amount. A court of law determines the bail amount, and the grant of bail is conditional on the accused meeting this demand.
The criminal procedure code also specifies the form an accused must complete when applying for bail.
Non-bailable offences, as the name implies, are those in which the accused does not have an unrestricted right to bail. All offences not listed in the first schedule of the Criminal Procedure Code are non-bailable. These are offences punishable by the death penalty, life imprisonment, or rigorous imprisonment for more than seven years.
In the case of non-bailable offences, the decision to grant bail is at the discretion of a court of law, which may refuse or grant bail subject to certain conditions as the court deems appropriate. A magistrate must record the reasons for their decision in the court’s order when deciding whether to grant or refuse bail to an accused.
In the case of a non-bailable offence, a bail application can be made through form 45, as outlined in the criminal procedure code.
These are offences for which the criminal procedure code gives the police administration the authority to arrest an accused person without a warrant in certain cases and with a warrant in other form of cases. As a result of the police administration’s absolute authority, cognizable offences are frequently more serious offences of a serious nature that carry the more severe punishments under the Indian penal code.
The first schedule of the code of criminal procedure contains a list of all cognizable offences under the Indian penal code and other statutes.
Non Cognizable offences
These are offences other than that of cognizable offences for which the criminal procedure code gives the police administration the authority to record an complaint of the complainant against the accused person and NC copy is given to the Complainant to file a case against the accused before JMFC/MM or the court having the appropriate jurisdiction. On cognizable offences are less serious in nature that carry punishments under the Indian penal code having fine or simple imprisonment or otherwise as laid down as per the Indian Penal code.
