After having written extensively on the substantive and procedural Criminal Law – the Indian Penal Code, 1860 and the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973, Prof. KD Gaur has written an authoritative book on Law of Evidence. With this object in view, the author has endeavoured to write this book so that long felt need of students, teachers, members of the Bench and Bar, prosecutors, defense, police personnel, NGO’s, and those interested in the administration of justice be met. The importance of an exhaustive and standard text book on Law of Evidence can be visualized from the very fact that Law of Evidence is applicable to both civil and criminal cases including local and special Acts.
