Cross Examination of Accused is not mandatory in a Criminal Case

If an accused does not like to submit any documents or if he is not willing to give statement under section 340(2) of CRPC, he cannot be cross examined. A person is only cross examined when he given statement on oath.

Generally in a criminal trial, the accused gives statement under section 342 of CRPC. That statement is basically answers to the questions asked by the judge at the end of trial. If the accused answers such questions without furnishing any documents or without giving any statement on oath, he cannot be cross examined.
