Case summary
On corroboration, court held that on the charge of rape the corroborative evidence must confirm in some material particular that intercourse has taken place and that it has taken place without the woman’s consent, and also that the defendant was the man who committed the crime. On the issue of mistaken identity court held that the defence of mistaken identity does not arise. That the act took place in broad day light, the victim had ample time to identify the attacker and the attacker who was caught red handed was before the incidence known by the witness who made the arrest.
