Perjury means lying under oath.
@ZEESHAN it depends on facts and circumstances of case.
go through the main ingredients of perjury then find out whether it will be fit in your case or not
Section 191 to 199 deals with false evidence and offences against public justice. The punishment is upto 7 years. But depending upon gravity of the offence, it may differ from case to case.
1) Can a perjury case be filed DURING the trial of original case? Is it necessary that the perjury be identified/proved in the original case
2) What if there are strong evidences against FIR/chargesheet allegations? Can a perjury case be filed in parallel with the original case
yes,perjury case be filed DURING the trial of original case.in fact high court , p& haryana highcourt said in a case that perjury should be decided first.regards
