                                 "15.    The judgment in the case of Jarnail Singh v. State of Punjab,
                                (2011) 3 SCC 521 : 2011(1) RCR (Criminal) 925, relied on by the counsel
                                for the respondent-State also supports the case of the prosecution. In the

aforesaid judgment, this Court has held that merely because prosecution
did not examine any independent witness, would not necessarily lead to
conclusion that accused was falsely implicated. The evidence of official
witnesses cannot be distrusted and disbelieved, merely on account of their
official status. In the case of State, Govt. of NCT of Delhi v. Sunil & Anr.,
(2001) 1 SCC 652 : 2001(1) RCR (Criminal) 56 it was held as under:

“It is an archaic notion that actions of the Police Officer, should be
approached with initial distrust. It is time now to start placing at
least initial trust on the actions and the documents made by the
Police. At any rate, the Courts cannot start with the presumption
that the police records are untrustworthy. AS a presumption of
law, the presumption would be the other way round. The official
acts of the Police have been regularly performed is a wise principle
of presumption and recognized even by the Legislature”.
