Injustice any where is a threat to justice everywhere. Judiciary has the sole responsibility to deliver justice by protecting the innocent and punishing the culprits. But the task of differentiating innocent and culprit is not an easy option as the judge is never present at the scene of crime and only becomes acquainted with the case once it is presented before the court. In such situation judges rely on the evidences presented by the parties. Hence, evidence has a very crucial role in determining the rights and liabilities of parties of the case. This paper aims to explore and analyze circumstantial evidence and its necessary elements that needs to be fulfilled along with some case references.
