Whether Panchnama is admissible In Court Where Witnesses Merely Acted As Attestors And Did Not Disclose How Objects Were Discovered?

  Witnesses to the panchnamas and the seizures acted as mere attestors to the documents and did not disclose in their own words as to how these objects were discovered, i.e., at whose instance and how. Ergo, no lawful validity attaches to these proceedings recorded by the police in the context of collection of all this evidence.
