Document refers to all documents presented in court and used to review submitted documents. Public information and private information are two important types of information. Evidence is, in essence, more and better evidence that the court considers. In cases where there is no primary evidence, secondary evidence is the evidence given by the witness based on his own opinion. For this reason, the information was recorded as evidence. Section 91 and 92 exempt documentary evidence from oral evidence. Oral evidence cannot replace written evidence. Written evidence is included in the evidence for certain offenses specified in Section 91 and is more accurate and reliable as evidence than oral evidence.
