How to obtain the Medico Legal Certificate pending from 2019
Question: I need to obtain my own MLC papers from the hospital. At the time of the incident, I went to file a complaint about the incident and injuries caused by the accused person. However, they managed to influence the Investigating Officer (IO), and no action was taken on my complaint. Instead, a fake FIR was filed against one of the accused person's mothers. I have been suffering because of this.
Please guide me on how to obtain the MLC (Medico-Legal Certificate) from 2019, when the police sent me to the hospital. I do not have a copy of the FIR, as my original complaint has been destroyed. What is the process to obtain the MLC, and can you please provide guidance on this matter?
It is tough to get medico legal examination after the lapse of four years. To obtain the medico legal certificate you had to approach the government hospital immediately after the incident. After four years of the incident all injuries have been heeled. Hence, doctor will find nothing from the examination of injured area.
You should avoid taking medico legal certificate from the hospital. Instead of it, you should try to lodge first information report on the basis of complaint you lodged in 2019. If offences committed against you are punishable with the imprisonment over three years, then there is no limitation period for initiating proceedings against the accused.
