Leading Question


what happened or remedy for Defence Lawyer, If public prosecutor asked Leading Question in Chief Examination to prosecution witness without turn hostile the witness.

Even judge not stop to public prosecutor to asked Leading Question before turn hostile the witness.

Probably this happen with Junior advocates case as they do not known the Law of Cross Examination.

You have to object questions at the time of chief only. Thereafter you may not have any remedy.

You must insist the court to stop such leading questions or recording of evidence.
