Judgments on Evidence of an eye witness

Thursday, August 09, 2012
Evidence of an eye witness

Evidence of an eye witness — Mere fact that the eyewitnesses did not recognize the weapons used, makes no difference to the prosecution story.

Evidence of an eye witness

Evidence of an eye witness — Held, when an eyewitness behaves in a manner that perhaps would be unusual, it is not for the prosecution or the Court to go into the question as to why he reacted in such a manner — There is no fixed pattern of reaction of an eyewitness to a crime — When faced with what is termed as ‘an unusual reaction’ of an eyewitness, the Court must only examine whether the prosecution story is in anyway affected by such reaction — If the answer is in the negative, then such reaction is irrelevant.

Evidence of an eye witness

Evidence of eye witnesses — Large number of offenders  involved — It is necessary for the Court to seek corroboration, at least, from two or more witnesses as a measure of caution — Likewise, it is the quality and not the quantity of evidence to be the rule for conviction even where the number of eye witnesses is less than two.

Evidence of an eye witness

Evidence of an eye witness — The evidence of an eye witness, held,  can not be rejected only on the ground that enmity exists between the parties.

Evidence of an eye witness

Evidence of an eye witness — Accused persons, in the present case, did not cause injury to the eye witnesses who were highly inimical towards them and were at a hand-shaking distance — Held, merely the fact that these witnesses did not suffer any injury, will not make their evidence untrustworthy — Why the appellants did not cause any injury to these witnesses can not be explained by the prosecution — It will require entering into their mind — Human behaviour are sometimes strange.
