Certificate u/s 65B Evidence Act can be submitted at any stage of the trial: SC

The Supreme Court (SC), dealing with the issue of whether certificate u/s 65B Evidence Act, 1872 (Evidence Act) can be accepted at a later stage in the trial, has reiterated that certificate u/s 65B of the Evidence Act can be produced at any stage if the trial is not over. The SC took note of the fact that both the Trial Court as well as the Karnataka High Court has erred by not allowing the application filed u/s 311 Cr.P.C. for recalling prosecution witness & to take certificate u/s 65B.
