Tape Recorded conversation. Even if recorded secretly, can be used as evidence in court

Standard

Illegally or secretly recorded phone conversations can also be produced in court as evidence.

This gives power to people and journalists to trap corrupt public servants.

This can also be useful to those fighting false cases of 498A.

Delhi High Court gave detailed judgement in W.P.(Crl) 1582/2007 on 21/11/2012.

Among other, it relied on Case of R.M.Malkani versus Maharashtra 1973(1)SCC 471 to say that such contemporary tape recorded evidence is relevant and can be admissible in evidence.
