"दण्ड: शास्ति प्रजा:सर्वा: दण्ड एवाभिरक्षति।"
मनुस्मृति (संस्कार विधि)
“The independence of the Public Prosecutor from any governmental control is the hallmark of this high office. A Public Prosecutor is really a minister of justice and his job is none other assisting the state in the administration of justice and in fact he is not a representative of any party.”
Hon’ble Supreme Court in Centre for p.i.l. vs. Union of India, (2012)3 scc 117.
