Any crime committed is a crime against the state..i.e. not only the offender but also the state.. therefore the state takes the initiative on Behalf of the informant and on behalf of all the citizens (considering its duty towards the other citizens as well as the informant to get the offender punished)

Deals with any harm or injury to rights of individuals. For example, disputes relating to sale of land, purchase of goods, rent matters, divorce cases A petition has to be filed before the relevant court by the affected party 2. It usually begins with the lodging of an First Information Report (FIR) with the police who investigate the crime after which a case is filed in the court. The court gives the specific relief asked for. For instance, in a case between a landlord and a tenant, the court can order the flat to be vacated and pending rent to be paid 3.
