Nirbhaya's Declarations By Hand Gestures "True, Consistent": Top Court
| Tuesday | 10th July, 2018
The bench said that as far as the third dying declaration is concerned, this court has already held that the dying declaration made through signs, gestures or by nods are admissible as evidence.
The three dying declarations made by Nirbhaya were recorded.
It also rejected the claim of one of the convicts, Vinay, that he was juvenile at the time of the incident.
The convicts had challenged the validity of the dying declaration and claimed that there were discrepancies in her statement.
A bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra said the trial court, high court and the Supreme Court elaborately considered the dying declarations during the trial of the case and the convicts could not be allowed to raise the same issues again.
