Virtual Reality (VR) is an emerging technology that offers immersive and interactive experiences to users. The technology has the potential to revolutionize the way criminal trials are conducted, offering benefits such as enhanced witness testimony, improved jury understanding, and increased access to crime scenes. However, the use of VR in criminal trials also raises several legal implications and challenges. This article aims to examine the legal implications of using VR in criminal trials in India, including issues of admissibility, authenticity, and privacy. It will also explore the challenges that arise from the use of VR in criminal trials, such as the potential for manipulation and bias. By analyzing the legal framework governing criminal trials in India and the potential impacts of VR technology, this article aims to contribute to the ongoing discourse surrounding the use of emerging technologies in the legal system.
