Disability of witness does not affect credibility: HC

New Delhi, Jun 28 () Courts must take due care when a differently-abled person who may have a limited vocabulary is being cross-examined and should protect such witnesses from being unfairly dealt with, the Delhi High Court has said.
The disability of such a witness does not affect his or her credibility, the High Court said, stressing it was the duty of a judge to control the cross-examination of such witnesses to prevent any abuse and protect them from being “unfairly dealt with”.
