Comments

 

When the lower Courts have been convinced ‘beyond reasonable doubt’ by the PW’s statement that the deceased died because of being fired upon by the accused, the conviction by such Courts is not bad in law and the reliance on PW need not be proved again [Hare Krishna Singh & Ors. v. State of Bihar; AIR 1988 SC 863].
