*How to prove photo in evidence?*
It is apropos to refer to the judgment of the Division Bench of this Court, in support of the view I have taken, in the case of Laxman Ganpati v. Anusayabai . The Division Bench in the said case was considering the proof of photo copy, negative as well as enlarged print and has considered the provisions as laid down under Sections 62 and 65 of the Evidence Act. It is held that it is only when the person who takes a photograph and develops it into a negative himself comes into the box and deposes to both those facts, that a negative becomes admissible in evidence. As far as the enlarged print is concerned, the position is still worse, for no point or enlargement can be admitted in evidence without its negative being produced and proved in the matter.
