When judge asked about any witness present on the place, one of the police said that "one child was there. Who might have heared the matter. But I can't say that he will explain, what we say..." The judge ordered to bring the child to the court. When the little Balshastri came & told regarding the matter in their language (English language), Judge gave the correct judgement and penalty was given to the culprit.
