Criminal Procedure Code carries 10 marks in the Bar Exam, as per the latest syllabus. Indian law prescribes a specific procedure which different players must follow in the event a criminal case is filed for prosecuting the accused (and punishing if he is found guilty) – specific steps should be followed for recording the complaint or FIR, investigating into the crime, for conducting the trial, for taking evidence, hearing witnesses, for passing a sentence, etc. These processes are elaborated in the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973 (CrPC).
