In India perjury encompasses statement, material and/or any other form of evidence. The use of false material and inconsistent declarations also fall under the category of perjury. For instance, in the Jessica Lall case, it has to be seen whether the sudden invention of two weapons having been used constituted false material. In Zaheera Sheikh case it is her inconsistent declarations and retractions.
