Description
The law of evidence is related to a legal system as facts are to rights and liabilities. The law of evidence plays a pivotal role in the effective functioning of the judicial system as the existence of substantive rights and liabilities can only be established through relevant and admissible evidence. For deciding rights and liabilities with the help of rules of evidence, judicial process is also influenced by developments in the society, which enable a judge to exercise wide discretion especially in matters of appreciation of evidence and quantum of sentence. During recent years this fact has become all the more evident from judicial attitude towards crimes against women and weaker sections of the society. With rapid advances in diverse fields of life, human relations have undergone an unforeseen transformation, presenting new conflicts and controversies. The law of evidence has to therefore regularly groom itself in order to face the emerging developments which pose unprecedented problems in the collection of evidence and proof of facts. Therefore, the lav. of evidence is constantly growing despite minimal legislative changes made therein. In view of these observations it was really a meticulous task to choose material for revision of this classic work on the law of evidence.
