Expert Evidence: Non-fatal Offences


In the English law, non-fatal offences are generally considered the form of offences which is defined as attacks that are directed to another person but they do not lead to the death of an individual. During such offences where death results they are considered as homicide while, a sexual offence which is another form of offence is considered independently because of its differentiation from other forms of offences on the basis of the theoretical and composition basis offences against the person.

This was the alarming condition for her and she was so much scared, so she thought to call police in order to receive some help which she needed the most at that time. But eventually, she considered that police could not take this situation seriously and there might be a possibly that Abdul vanished away from the situation.
