CRIMINAL APPEAL NO. 1301 OF 2015

About/from the judgment:

Non-Mentioning Of Accused’s Name In FIR Not A Ground To Doubt Its Contents!

 

Some times in the state of shock, they (the witness) may miss the important details, because people tend to react differently when they come across a violent act, the bench said.

 

When a person gives a statement to the police officer, basing on which the FIR is registered[,] [t]he capacity of reproducing the things differs from person to person. Some people may have the ability to reproduce the things as it is, some may lack the ability to do so. Some times in the state of shock, they may miss the important details, because people tend to react differently when they come across a violent act.
