Clerk:
This honourable court of class 8 B of the Schram Academy, Chennai with the Honourable Justice Miss/Mr.J is now in session. Now the judge enters. All rise.

Judge:
You may be seated.

Clerk: Your Honour, this is the case of robbery of Miss V’s diamond necklace.

Prosecutor: I, P, represent Miss V, the petitioner.

Defendant: I, D, represent Miss O, the defendant.

Prosecutor: Your Honour, my client Miss V’s diamond necklace is missing from her house. She suspects her maidservant, Miss O, for having stolen it.

Defendant: Objection, Your Honour! My client, Miss O is innocent until proven guilty.

Judge: Objection sustained.

Defendant: Miss V, did you see Miss O stealing your necklace?

Victim: No, I did not. But I strongly suspect that she has stolen my necklace because she is the only maid who enters my room.

Judge: The Prosecution may call its witness.

Prosecutor: What is your name?

Witness: My name is W.

Prosecutor: Where do you work?

Witness: I work as one of the two maidservants for Madam V.

Prosecutor: Did you see Miss O stealing the necklace?

Witness: Yes, I saw her entering Madam V’s room and return after 5 minutes with something shining in her hand.

Defendant: Objection, Your Honour!

Judge: Objection sustained.

Defendant: Your Honour, the item described by the witness need not necessarily be the necklace. It can also be some other item.

Prosecutor: Miss W, did you see the object in Miss O’s hand clearly?

Witness: Yes, I saw it clearly. I am sure it was the diamond necklace.

Prosecutor: The point may be noted. Thats all, your Honour.

Judge: Do you have any question to the witness? (to D)

Defendant: No, Your Honour.

Judge: Do you have anything to say before the court? ( to O)

Offender: Your Honour, I have not stolen Madam’s necklace and I am innocent.I am paid good salary and therefore need not steal anything.

Judge: But the evidence has proven you guilty. Therefore, this court sentences you 1 year imprisonment and a fine of Rs. 5000. The court is adjourned.

All together: THANK YOU.
