Criminal Trial – Conviction has to be based on the evidence which proves the accused guilty beyond reasonable doubt. (Para 14)

Criminal Trial – A sole eyewitness, happens to be the most interested witness being the father of the deceased and having long enmity with the group to which the accused persons belong, therefore, his testimony was to be examined with great caution and the High Court was justified in doing so and in doubting it so as to uphold the conviction on his solitary evidence. (Para 13)
