Duty of The Public Prosecutor In The Criminal Justice System

Duty of The Public Prosecutor In The Criminal Justice System
The role of the Prosecutor is not to single-mindedly seek a conviction regardless of the evidence but his/her fundamental duty is to ensure that justice is delivered . The Indian judiciary interpreted role, responsibilities and duties of prosecution as follows:

1) The ideal Public Prosecutor is not concerned with securing convictions, or with satisfying departments of the State Governments with which she/he has been in contact. He must consider herself/himself as an agent of justice. The Allahabad High Court had ruled that it is the duty of the Public Prosecutor to see that justice is vindicated and that he should not obtain an unrighteous conviction.
