If Murder is Proved not establishing Motive Inconsequential

If guilt is established, not proving motive is inconsequential

In case of daylight murder, when there is reliable witness and direct ocular evidence, the failure of the prosecution to establish motive is inconsequential in convicting the accused, says Chandan v The State (Delhi Administration) .

Arrest, procedures & trial have been done properly

The arrest of the accused and recovery of knife from the accused was happened in quick succession with a very little time ga. The eye witness was put to a lengthy cross examination by the defence but nothing has come out which may discredit the witness.

Entire evidence proved the guilt of the accused

Entire evidence by the prosecution established the guilt of the accused beyond reasonable doubt and hence motive need not be established to convict the accused.

The SC upheld the High Court judgement which upheld the trial court order.
