Relevant means that which is logically probative. The rules of relevancy declare certain facts relevant. Section 5 to 55 of the Act deals with question of relevancy.
Section 5: Of what fact may evidence be given
“Evidence may be given in any suit or proceeding of the existence or non-existence of every fact in issue and of relevant facts and of no others.”
Explanation-This section shall not enable any person to give evidence of a fact which he is disentitled to prove by any provision of law for the time being in force relating to civil procedure.
A is tried for the murder of B by beating him with a club with the intention of causing his death. At A’s trial the following facts are in issue: A’s beating B with the club; A’s causing B’s death by such beating; A’s intention to cause B’s death.
All facts which are logically relevant facts are considered as relevant. Only legally relevant facts are considered as relevant facts. One fact is said to be legally relevant to another only when one is connected with the other in any of the ways referred to Sections 6-55 of the Act.
