Vepa P. Sarathi’s Law of Evidence is a classic work on the subject that clarifies and explains the complicated rules governing the law of evidence in a straightforward and easily comprehensible style. While maintaining the flair of this admired work, the revising author has updated the current edition of the book with the latest case law and statutory changes which have taken place since the last edition.
The following are the unique features of the book:
Latest case laws, including the case of Mukesh Singh v. State (NCT of Delhi), (2020) 10 SCC 120, have been incorporated at appropriate places in the book.
The latest case on electronic evidence, Arjun Pandit Rao Khotkar case of October, 2020 [Arjun Panditrao Khotkar v. Kailash Kushanrao Gorantyal, (2020) 7 SCC 1, Order dated 14-7-2020] is also included.
Covers amendments carried out in the Evidence Act, 1872 through the Criminal Law (Amendment) Act, 2018.
Includes two useful appendices. The first appendix discusses whether the Industrial Tribunal is bound by the rules of Evidence Act and the second appendix is devoted to Digital and Electronic Signatures.
With the enormous growth of Information Technology, electronic records have replaced paper-based transactions and consequently the use of digital and electronic signatures to authenticate these records. This edition exhaustively deals with this topic including the pronouncement of the Supreme Court in Anvar P.V. v. P.K. Basheer, (2014) 10 SCC 473.
The book will be immensely useful for students of the LL B and LL M courses, public prosecutors, law teachers and members of the Bench and the Bar.
