whether conviction can be based merely on the confession of accused made in the examination u/s 313 Cr.P.C. ?
yogita (student) 11 June 2009
Confession of an accused (under Section 313 Cr. P.C. without oath) cannot be the sole basis for the punishment.
Also, "The accused shall not render himself liable to punishment by refusing to answer such questions, or by giving false answers to them"
