Juries Act, 1927

Death or illness of juror during trial.

64.—Whenever in the course of the trial of any issue, a juror dies or is discharged by the Judge owing to his being incapable through illness or any other cause of continuing to act as a juror, the jury shall, unless the Judge otherwise directs or the number of jurors is thereby reduced below ten, be considered as remaining properly constituted for all the purposes of such trial, and such trial shall proceed and a verdict may be found accordingly.
