EVIDENTIARY VALUE OF CONFESSION
A Confession is ordinarily admissible in evidence. It is a relevant fact. A confession, judicial or extra-judicial if found to have been voluntarily made can form the basis of conviction of the accused.
A confession is admissible without examining the Magistrate who recorded the same. If the confession is not in conformity with law, even the examination of the Magistrate will not cure the illegality.
