Criminal case u/s.420

what is punishment for a witness for giving false statement in court....
For contradictions in police statement and statement given in court.

Retired employee.

If the witness is the same, the advocate has to use these discrepancies during cross-examination to expose such person's character.


False Statement attracts many Sections of The Indian Penal Code depending upon the distinctness of the ingredients.     You'd better refer to Chapter FORGERY.      You needn't buy a Book.     Google will be enough.

Please ascertain whether Statement was made in the Court or before being submitted in the Court.      In other words, please ascertain whether Section 195 of The Criminal Procedure is attracted.      For this Google won't be enough.

It's a deep study.     I can, in order not to vex the members, send you a Reply if you ask for it in your Private Message.
