  1. This in my opinion is not a properly written certificate. Also when the plaintiff himself produces the certificate, it becomes a self serving evidence and does not add value.

    (u/S 65B of the Indian Evidence Act, 1872)

    It is hereby certified that the electronic evidences submitted in C.C. No. ____/2017 for expert analysis have been transcribed and produced in their respective authentic copies:

    a. The telephonic conversations submitted by the investigating authority have been verified for audio and a report has been prepared in that regard. The audio obtained has been safely stored within a computer system and the recorder is the one used by the investigators in every case, hence, is in their safe possession. Leave be granted to refer to the typed audio extracts submitted as the true source.

    b. The video recording submitted by the investigating authority has been verified for being tamper-proof.
