  • Subhajit Chakraborty

Abstract

Everything which does not keep pace with the changing needs of the society does not last for a long time and as such law should not be static in nature it should meet the demands of the changing society. Law has been categorically divided into substantive law and procedural law and the substantive portion of the law is applied in practice through the mechanism provided under the procedural law.  The current paper emphasizes upon determining the true meaning and nature of an accomplice. Moreover, the paper attempts to deal with the ways and extent how a court of criminal judicature will rely upon the evidence of an accomplice as an instrument for rendering justice.
