Criminal cases are cases between the state and an individual, with the state prosecuting the case and the accused person defending himself. The complainant becomes a witness. It is therefore upon the state to prove their case against the accused person, beyond reasonable doubt. A criminal case usually starts with a complaint at the police station, followed by an arrest. The arrested person is then charged with an offence. The offence is recorded in a charge sheet, which contains the description of the alleged crime and the law it contravenes.
