    For filing 340 CrPc for perjury what are the ingredients.Is it necessary to file perjury only during the proceeding of the case or even after the judgement by the court?.

    We noted that in one case before the false statement under affidavit could be brought to the notice of the court the opposite party withdrew the case to avoid its immediate implication.With the withdrawal of the case by the opposite party the judge closed the case and the false affidavit could not be produced before the judge immediately.The point is whether we can still file the perjury case against the opposite party in the same court?
