Judgments on Statement of Witnesses

Saturday, July 30, 2011
Statement of Witnesses

Statement of witness — Every small discrepancy or minor contradiction which may erupt in the statements of a witness because of lapse of time, keeping in view the educational and other background of the witness, cannot be treated as fatal to the case of the prosecution. The court must examine the statement in its entirety, correct perspective and in light of the attendant circumstances brought on record by the prosecution.

Statement of Witnesses

Statement of a witness — The statement of a witness must be read as a whole — Reliance on a mere line in the statement of the witness, out of context, would not serve the ends of justice and the conclusion of the Court based on such appreciation of evidence could be faulted.
