Audio recording in original media but deleted a few


I have made a number of recording (let say10) in my original device but mistakenly I deleted few (let say 3) of the recordings with others (7 recordings) untouched.

So can you please specify that remaining 7 recordings which are untouched are producable in court (as per evidence act) or not?

YES why not !

only thing is - the files should be on original media and untampered.

A recording done in phone and copied to laptop and CD. Can this CD be produced as evidence?



You just mentioned that If they satisfy the test laid down by the SC for the admissibility of audio-recordings they can be relied upon.

What are those tests?

I recorded in a device (Olympus audio recorder) and had 10 recordings in it.

Few days back, I deleted 3 of those 10 recordings thus other 7 were untouched.

Are they producable? What can be the issues?

I am asking so as for me it will be almost impossible to get more new such recordings and thus I am worried that what I have, will work in court or not?

If it will not work then I will have to push the Bi*ch to say all things again which I doubt that she will accept.

So I just want to be ensured that should I sit tight with those (7 ) recordings assuming it is admissible or try recording again.

These are gud enough, keep them.

If u r interested in more. Keep the original memmory card safe, start with new memmory card. At the end all memmory cards + device used wil be submitted in court if u need
