Whether prosecution case can be disbelieved if weapon of offence is not recovered?

In any case, it is an established proposition of law that mere non-recovery of weapon does not falsify the prosecution case where there is ample unimpeachable ocular evidence. [See Lakhan Sao v. State of Bihar and Anr. MANU/SC/0359/2000 : (2000) 9 SCC 82; State of Rajasthan v. Arjun Singh and Ors. MANU/SC/1017/2011 : (2011) 9 SCC 115 and Manjit Singh and Anr. v. State of Punjab MANU/SC/0936/2013 : (2013) 12 SCC 746].
