Buddhadeb Saha vs State of West Bengal 2023 INSC 1084 – Death By Poisoning

Criminal TrialDeath by poisoning – Where the deceased dies as a result of poisoning, it is difficult to successfully isolate the poison and recognise it. Lack of positive evidence in this respect would not result in throwing out the entire prosecution case, if the other circumstances clearly point out the guilt of the accused – the absence of detection of poison in the viscera report alone need not be treated as a conclusive proof of the fact that the victim has not died of poison. (Para 28-35)
