Can the Court treat the witness's statement identifying the suspect in the Test identification parade as substantive evidence?

  Thus, it is clear that the Test Identification Parade is conducted by the Magistrate only in aid of investigation and the statement of the witness identifying the suspect in the parade cannot be treated as a substantive evidence of identification in the trial of the accused. It is only corroborative evidence.{Para 83}
