    This is an academic question, which we don’t answer as per our Forum guidelines. This Forum is meant to help on real legal issues of litigants and not academic legal issues.

    In any case, this rule is writ everywhere in criminal laws, spread over various provisions, starting with Article 21 of the Constitution of India which guarantees a fundamental right mandating that: "No person shall be deprived of his life or personal liberty except according to procedure established by law."

    If you are an accused in a criminal case, then you have to take help of specific provisions of the criminal law (such as Evidence Act and Criminal Procedure Code, etc.) instead of harping on such academic issues. So, use the relevant individual specific section of law, when facing a specific problem during your criminal trial or investigation.
