Cross - examination
Can a photograph be shown to the witness in cross examination?
A photograph can be submitted as an evidence under the Evidence Act, 1872. With the incorporation of Section 65 A and 65 B in the Act, electronic records like photographs can be considered as a document as per the Act. Therefore, the photograph can be submitted as a evidence if it can be shown that it is required to establish the relevant fact. Further in the stage of cross -examination it is important that the questions raised during the cross-examination test the veracity of the witness, or shake his credit by injuring his character(Section 155 of the Evidence Act, 1872).
