AdvertisingThe petition added that the court should have considered the testimony of the 118 prosecution witnesses, who were not declared hostile, instead of dismissing it.
Rubabuddin also claimed that video recordings of statements of various witnesses were not even brought forth during trial.
The appellant (Rubabuddin) points out that the same is very true in this present instance as out of 92 hostile witnesses, 19 are policemen,” the appeal stated.
