On an analysis of the suggestion received by the Law Commission,1 it appears that the main objectives to be achieved are the following:-
(a) the report of the officer concerned should be admissible as evidence in criminal cases;
(b) subject to a second opinion of a superior officer, the report should be conclusive as to the facts stated therein;
(c) the officer concerned should not be liable to be summoned in Court
(i) either to produce the documents on which the report is based; or
(ii) to give oral evidence derived from such records.
