Supreme Court pronouncements touching the question of Evidence- admission of evidence and appreciation of evidence

EVIDENCE.— “ Evidence” means and includes—

(1) all statements which the Court permits or requires to be made before it by witnesses, in relation to matters of fact under inquiry, such statements are called oral evidence;
(2) all documents including electronic records produced for the inspection of the Court, such documents are called documentary evidence.

COMMENT: Facts allowed by the trial Judge is Evidence and Evidential-facts either to be proved or Disproved. Evidence and Fact are interchangeable words, so technically FACT + PERMISSION = EVIDENCE. An investigator may bring so many things/facts/factor/articles under a ‘List’, but the moment the trial judge pickup a thing/fact/factor/article, it shall get the legal term- ‘Evidence’
