Delhi Judicial Services Prelims Mock Test - 1 - Question 42

Under the Indian Evidence Act, 1872, evidence of a hostile witness

Detailed Solution for Delhi Judicial Services Prelims Mock Test - 1 - Question 42

A hostile witness is one who, from the manner in which he gives evidence, shows that he is not desirous of telling the truth to the court. A witness who is gained over by the opposite party is a hostile witness. The mere fact that at a Sessions trial, a witness tells a different story from that told by him before the Magistrate does not necessarily make him hostile.
It is interesting to note that the act does not use the expression 'hostile witness', thereby avoiding the confusion prevailing under English law by the use of the term. The section merely confers a discretion on the court to allow a party to cross-examine its own witness.
It is well-settled law that the evidence of a hostile witness would not be totally rejected if spoken in favour of the prosecution or the accused but it can be subjected to closed scrutiny and that portion of the evidence which is consistent with the case of the prosecution or defence may be accepted. Therefore, it is clear that evidence given by hostile witness can be relied on by the prosecution as well as the defence.
