In case if the court has acquitted the accused then why a need was felt to reck up the past of the candidate? By the way, why the criminal case was filed? Was it in his personal capacity did any of his past employer file a suit against him? How any recruiter or HR of his future company will come to know about the criminal case?
By the way, in the recently-held parliamentary elections, we the people of India have elected 43% MPs who have criminal cases pending against them. Some of them have become union ministers also. Few MPs are out on bail. Against this backdrop, why anyone should have any objection against a closed case is not understood.
Let the candidate just keep quiet and not disclose about the criminal case. In case if he could not work because of the case, then he needs to concoct some reason for being unemployed for a certain period.
