            section 160 and 161 are meant for witnesses not for accused, if the police wants to record statement of accused he can do so u/s 164 that too before magistrate

Dear all:

Section 160 C.R.Pc. requires the attendance of any person who has is acquanined with the facts of the case. Therefore accused too comes in this category.

And as per Section 161 of C.R.Pc. Police may examine/interrogate/ask the questions from such person. It may be oral or in writting.

Dear friends,

statement from accused can also be taken , either under sec 25 of evidence act , or under sec 27 of evidence act, if  he makes a confession to the police officer . here, confession to a police officer under sec 25 has no evidentary value, but, confession under sec 27 evidence act is admissible in evidence, if it leads to some recovery ,
