Yes. On the contrary the courts insist for corroborotive evidence in a number of matters.

Hi.. Any fact can be put to Relevancy even if it is not corroborated by Sections 6-10 or 12-55 of the Indian Evidence Act, BY VIRTUE OF SECTION 11 (WHICH IS A RESIDUARY SECTION) - THE PLAIN READING OF WHICH EXPOSES THOSE FACTS WHICH ARE EVEN INCONSISTENT WITH RELEVANT FACTS OR FACTS IN ISSUE, OR WHICH BY THEMSELVES OR IN COMBINATION WITH ONE OR MORE OTHER FACTS IN ISSUE OR RELEVANT FACTS DETERMINE ITS RESIDUARY CHARACTER ATTACHED TO THE TRANSACTION.

`YES' CORROBORATED EVIDENCE CAN FIND A PLACE SO FAR THE RELEVANCY PERTINENT TO EVIDENCE IS CONCERNED. IT TANTAMOUNTS TO SUPPORT THE ALREADY EXISTING FACTS.

Sir,


         In criminal cases corroboration is essential in convicting persons but in some cases like that of Rape and other offences against women corroboration is not necessary. A mere statement alleging the offence against the accused itself is sufficient.
