IN THE COURT OF _____________________________
COMPLAINT NO ___________ OF 20__
IN THE MATTER OF:
APPLICATION ON BEHALF OF EXEMPTION FROM PERSONAL APPEARANCE OF COMPLAINANT
MOST RESPECTFULLY SHOWETH:
That the abovementioned matter is pending adjudication before this Hon'ble Court and fixed for today.
That the applicant is the Complainant in the present matter and he had to appear before the Hon'ble Court but since he is not well (or any other reason), it would not be possible for him to appear before Hon'ble Court today hence present the application.
That reason of absence of applicant is neither wilful nor deliberate, but all because of said reason only.
It is therefore most respectfully prayed before this Hon'ble Court that applicant may be granted exemption from personal appearance only for today so as to be the same in the interest of justice.
It is prayed accordingly.
