Judgments on Witness

Saturday, November 06, 2010

Witness — Non-examination of — Held, it is not necessary for the prosecution to examine every other witness cited by them in the charge-sheet. Mere non-examination of some persons does not corrode the vitality of the prosecution version.

Witness — Reliability of — Witness, in the present case, was a child of about six years of age at the time of occurrence — His statement in the trial court was recorded after a gap of about 10 years — High Court came to the conclusion that the witness was not a reliable one because it is inconceivable that child of his understanding would recpitulate facts in his memory witnessed by him long ago — Held, there is no principle of law known to this Court that it is inconceivable that a child of tender age would not be able to recapitulate facts in his memory witnessed by him long ago — Reasoning adopted by the High Court is strange and cannot be accepted.
