Section 65A of the Indian Evidence Act, 1872 permits contents of electronic records to be presented as evidence. "Electronic record" includes sound stored, received or sent in an electronic form. So, on the face of things, the recording can be used as evidence.
However, practically, the recording can be challenged as being fabricated or edited to suit your convenience. It is your responsibility to prove that the recorded statement is accurate. This is especially so in a case where the statement is recorded without the consent of the speaker.
I suggest you meet a lawyer for a detailed consultation before deciding on further course of action.
The audio proofs gathered by you and their use by you in a court of law are a grey area as there is the whole issue of breach of privacy. However, if the recordings are in original form and if you can prove that they haven’t been tampered with, the recordings can play a significant role in pushing things in your favour. You can also have a copy of the recordings certified by an expert.
