Dying Declaration: Can conviction be based solely on it?

Indian Evidence Act, passed in 1872, had no clue that the world would witness great technological advancements in the future.

So the law included a provision wherein anybody can record, in writing, the statement of a medically vulnerable person and get his/her thumb impression or signature. Similarly, recording a statement via gestures, signs, oral or written impressions of a victim stating the cause of his/ her death evolved to be known as a dying declaration.

42nd Amendment of Indian Constitution

The 42nd amendment act, as alleged, was India’s Constitution or Indira’s Constitution? We are saying this because the Indira Gandhi government brought the most criticised amendment of all time, known as the “mini-constitution”, which is the 42nd amendment. Every time a constitutional amendment is introduced, it undoubtedly strengthens our Indian Constitution, but it was the first time when an amendment (42nd amendment) came up to satisfy the personal ambitions of a government leader, Indira Gandhi, and not to strengthen our Constitution and Indian democracy with few of its provisions chucked out while some still in force.

Sedition law: What is section 124A IPC?

Kanhaiya Kumar, Aseem Trivedi, Binayak Sen, Arundhati Roy, and Owaisi are well-known for high-profile sedition charges imposed on them. Although Thomas Macaulay, who originally drafted the Indian Penal Code in 1837, included the law on sedition (Sec. 113 of the draft code), it was not inserted in the final draft of the code enacted in 1860; this omission was considered accidental. Later, in 1890, sedition was included under section 124A IPC through Special Act XVII. But, obviously, it was subjected to massive misuse.
