The Supreme Court has said that doubt can never take the place of evidence, no matter how strong it is. The court asserted that any accused is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond reasonable doubt. A bench of Justice Indira Banerjee and Justice Hemant Gupta upheld a judgment of the Orissa High Court that the link of evidence against any accused should be so complete that the charge against him could be proved.

Orissa High Court acquitted two accused of killing a home guard by giving them electric current for lack of evidence. The bench said, “It is well established by the judicial pronouncement of this Court that doubt, even if it is strong, cannot replace evidence.” Any accused is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond reasonable doubt.

Geetanjali Tadu had said in her complaint that her husband Bijay Kumar Tadu, posted at Chandabali police station, was killed by Banabihari Mahapatra and her son Luja and others by feeding them some poisonous substances and then by electrocution. The apex court said that the postmortem report shows that the death occurred due to electric current, but there is no tentative evidence that it is a case of murder.

The bench said, simply due to the fact that the deceased was lying in the room of the accused defendant-1 and the accused defendants informed the complainant that the deceased (the complainant’s husband) was in a sleepy state and did not react to the sound, it It is not proven that the accused defendants murdered him.

The apex court said that the prosecution failed to prove the guilt of the accused and the court acquitted the accused and took the right decision. It said that ecological evidence should also be such that it can be proved and there should be a string of evidence in which there is no scope for doubt.

The bench said that it is quite possible that the accused may have drunk liquor to the complainant’s husband, as the post-mortem doctor believes, had accidentally come in contact with the electric wire while sleeping.
