The Supreme Court has reiterated that the role of a government law officer/ public prosecutor is not that of a postman. Public prosecutors should not be totally guided by the instructions given by the government, instead, they owe a primary duty towards the Court, the Supreme Court ruled.

The observations were part of a judgment rendered by Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra and Justice DY Chandrachud in an appeal against a decision of the Kerala High Court.
