Why is a leading question not asked in direct examination of a witness?

Leading question must not, if objected to by the adverse party, be asked in an examination – in-chief, or in re-examination, except with the permission of the Court.

The Court shall permit leading question as to matters which are introductory or undisputed, or which have, in its opinion been already sufficiently proved.
