Criminal Appeal No.296 of 2014.

Date of Decision. 4.9.2019.

Mohammed Fasrin Versus State Rep. By The Intelligence Officer

Para 8

We, for the decision of this case, therefore, proceed on the premise that the confession is admissible. Even if it is admissible, the Court has to be satisfied that it is a voluntary statement, free from any pressure and also that the accused was apprised of his rights before recording the confession. No such material has been brought on the record of this case. It is also well settled that a confession, especially a confession recorded when the accused is in custody, is a weak piece of evidence and there must be some corroborative evidence.
