Volume No - 6     Issue No - 2

Shifting of some part of the onus to the accused may not be relevant in a case where the entire case of the prosecution itself is not reliable and where the prosecution fails to produce any believable evidence. It is trite that in all such cases the initial onus of proof always lies upon the prosecution and if the prosecution fails to adduce reliable evidence in support of its own case then the accused person cannot be convicted merely on the basis of lack of discharge of some part of the onus on him.
