State of Haryana vs Mohd. Yunus 2024 INSC 34 :: [2024] 1 S.C.R. 404 – Criminal Trial – Untrustworthy witness

Criminal Trial – S 302 IPC – For trial under Section 302 IPC, if a witness is branded as untrustworthy having allegedly twisted the facts and made contrary statement, it is not safe to impose conviction on the basis of statement made by such witness. When there is an effort to falsely implicate one accused person, statement made by such an eyewitness cannot be relied without strong corroboration. (Para 18)
