Hello. The Petitioner filed Affidavit-in-Chief in a Domestic Violence case. Then, on the day of her Cross-examination, she filed additional Affidavit-in-Chief. No application seeking the permission of the Court was filed on that day (it was filed later). The Respondent submitted written objections to the Court the same day.
Does a litigant have a right to file additional Affidavit-in-Chief ? Is this permissible in law ? Also need citations if it is not so.
The Code only provides for Affidavit-in-Chief, and then Cross-examination, but not additional Affidavit-in-Chief.
