Advocate Jaspal Singh Manjhpur takes on News18 “exclusive confession”.
Advocate Jaspal Singh Manjhpur takes on New18 directly and exposes the “so-called-confessions” as completely baseless and without any credibility. Stating that videos were recorded in police custody, in unknown conditions and without legal representation, and are inadmissible in court according to the Indian Evidence Act. Further Manjhpur stated that the history of Punjab police regarding torture and duress is well documented in regards to extracting forced confessions.
Key points from Advocate Manjhpur’s response:
– Confessions in police custody not admissible in court.
– Well documented history of police abuse undermines credibility of confessions during interrogation.
– No recovery of evidence has been made or presented to courts as a result of interrogation.
– Leaking of “exclusive” footage to the media raises serious concerns about the motivations of investigating agencies and police.
– No information in the videos substantiates the allegations.
Section 25 Indian Evidence Act 1872:
No confession made to a police-officer, shall be proved as against a person accused of any offence.
