As the evidence stage is closed file an application to reopen the evidence stating the necessity of the report and its value. You can argue that the report is required to comply with the procedure of evidence in gunshot matters and if report is not submitted and considered by court, it would tantamount to subversion of procedural laws and lead to injustice.

hi krishanaa, problem in hand is that prosecution closed the witness and our member is for accused so it is good for accused coz prosecution has failed to prove its case, so our member can argue that porsecution had not establied that the bullet which is find in the victim's body r fired from the accused pistol.
