It is alleged that on 21.6.2005 at about 9 a.m. Man Singh, father of the first informant, and Mratunjay Singh, brother of the first informant had gone to the shop of one Udhao Shyam Kesarwani to settle the account where the deceased Balendra Singh, elder brother of the first informant and kaushlendra Singh, younger brother of the first informant also came out from the side of their field. In the meantime, co-accused Lakhan Singh applicant Vinay Kuamr Sigh, Satyendra Singh, Narendra Singh armed with gun and the applicant Hori Lal Pasi armed with country made pistol came out from their houses, who reached at the place of the occurrence. Thereafter at the exhortation of the co-accused Lakhan Singh, all the co-accused persons, fired indiscriminately consequently, the deceased Balendra Singh received gun shot injury and died on the spot.

Heard Sri V.C. Tiwari, Senior Advocate, assisted by Sri Manish Tiwari and Sri A.K. Awasthi, learned counsel for the applicants and the learned A.G.A. and Sri Murlidhar Misra, learned counsel for the complainant.
It is contended by the learned counsel for the applicants :-
I.that there was no motive or intention for the applicants and other co-accused persons to commit the alleged offence, even the F.I.R. is silent on the point of motive.
II.that according to the prosecution version the applicants and four other co-accused persons committed alleged offence in which the applicant Vinay Kumar Singh armed with lathi and revolver and applicant Hori Lal Pasi was armed with country made pistol and three other co-accused persons were armed with guns. According to the prosecution story all the five persons fired indiscriminately, but this story is not supported by the medical evidence because according to the post mortem examination report of the two deceased persons and medical examination report of the injured Man Singh, they received only four gun shot wounds of entries, even they have not received five gun shot wounds of entries, whereas the role of firing was attributed to five accused persons.
III.that the nature of the gun shot wounds of entries received by the deceased persons shows that the injuries were caused from a close range .
IV.that none of the injuries was caused by revolver, which was shown in the hands of the applicant Vinay Kumar Singh. Therefore, the participation of the applicants Vinay Kumar Singh in commission of the alleged offence, is highly doubtful.
V.that from the surrounding facts and circumstances of the case it transpires that the alleged incident occurred sometime in the early morning when there was dark and there was no opportunity for any witness to identify the real assailant.
VI.that the statement of the deceased Mratunjay Singh, while he was alive, was recorded on 21.6.2005 by the I.O. under section 161 Cr.P.C. On the same day, the statement of Udhao Shyam and Kaushlendra Singh were recorded and the statement of Balram Singh was recorded on 24.6.2005 and the statement of the injured Man Singh was recorded on 17.7.2005. There was delay in interrogation of the witnesses by the I.O., which shows that the statements of the above mentioned witnesses were recorded after thought. According to the statement of the deceased Mratunjay Singh, applicant Hori Lal Pasi armed with Tamancha and applicant Vinay Kumar Singh was armed with licensee revolver and lathi the other accused Lakhan was armed with lathi, the role of exhortation was assigned to him. The co-accused Narendra was armed with S.B.B.L. Gun and co-accused Shardendu and Satyendra Singh were armed with D.B.B.L. Gun. According to his statement also all the accused persons who were armed with the fire arm, discharged shot indiscriminately. No specific role has been assigned to any of the accused. Similar statement was given by Kaushlendra Singh and Balram Singh. The statement of the injured Man Singh was also similar the statement of Udhao Shyam shows that he was not an eye witness of the entire incident. According to the statement of the witnesses the applicant Vinay kumar Singh was armed with revolver and the applicant Hori Lal Pasi was armed with Katta(country made pistol)
VII.that in the present case F.I.R. is anti time because according to the medical examination report of the injured Man Singh, he was brought by Constable C.P. 68 Vinod Chand Dubey. He was examined on 21.6.2005 at 1.30 p.m. at S.R.N. Hospital. It is mentioned in the report that 'police informed' and the Chitthi Mazroobi was not having any crime number and the sections of the offence. The same entry was in the medical examination report of the deceased Mratunjay Singh alias Daroga and in the inquest report of the deceased Balendra, sections of the offence were written, subsequently in small letters in a short space. Inquest report, letter to R.I., letter to C.M.O. Photo Nash and Challan Nash, shows that at the time of preparation of the inquest report F.I.R. was not in existence.
VIII.that the prosecution story is highly improbably and absurd also. The co-accused Lakhan Singh has already been released on bail by this court. The applicants are innocent persons they have been falsely implicated on the ground of enmity and the applicants are ready to furnish reliable sureties to the entire satisfaction of the court concerned. Therefore the applicants may be released on bail.
It is opposed by the learned A.G.A. and Sri Murlidhar Mishra, learned counsel for the complainant. It is submitted by them :-
1) that the applicants and other co-accused persons have committed the present offence at about 9 a.m. on 21.6.2005 in front of a shop in the abadi area. Its F.I.R. was promptly lodged on the same day at 10.15 a.m. the distance of the police station was 15 k.m. from the alleged place of occurrence; the F.I.R. was promptly lodged and there was no delay in lodging the F.I.R. and there was no chance for consultation etc. and the F.I.R. is not anti timed.
2) that the first informant is also the witness of the alleged occurrence his two real brothers namely Balendra Singh and Mratunjay Singh alias Daroga have lost their lives and his father Man Singh became injured in the said incident. The presence of the witnesses including the injured witnesses Man Singh is not doubtful. The alleged occurrence has taken place in day time, the injuries were caused from a close range, there was no question of any mistaken identity, because the applicant and the other co-accused persons are also resident of the same village where the first informant resides.
3)that the applicant Vinay Kumar Singh was armed with revolver and the applicant Hori Lal Pasi was armed with Katta(Tamancha) and three other co-accused persons were armed with guns. They fired indiscriminately, it does not mean that every shot hit the deceased or injured. The deceased and injured received gun shot injuries. The nature of injuries shows that the injuries were caused by revolver, gun and country made pistol. A bare perusal of the medical examination report of the deceased Balendra Singh shows that this injury can be caused by revolver also and according to the post mortem examination report of deceased Daroga one spherical bullet was recovered from the abdominal cavity and the nature of the injuries shows that the injury can be caused by more than one firearm.
3) that in the present case the statement of Mratunjay Singh alias Daroga was recorded on the same day of the alleged occurrence by the I.O. who has supported the prosecution case. The statement of the other witnesses including the injured witness was recorded by the I.O. and there was, no undue, delay in their interrogation, the blood was recovered from the place of occurrence and there was no reason of false implication of the applicants and other co-accused persons. The statement of the deceased Mratunjay Singh Kaushlendra Singh,Udhao Singh, Balram Singh, Man Singh were recorded under section 161 Cr.P.C. after lodging the F.I.R. who have supported the prosecution story.
4) the F.I.R. is not anti timed because the inquest report of the deceased Balendra Singh shows the crime number 88 of 2005 and sections 147,148,149,307,302/34 I.P.C. are clearly mentioned. The time of the F.I.R. and the name of the first informant is mentioned as of the chik report and crime number and other relevant injuries are also clearly mentioned in challan Nash and Photo Nash etc. in the Challan Nash the time of the F.I.R. and the time of the occurrence is also clearly mentioned, which shows that the F.I.R. was in existence at the time of preparation of he inquest report, at this stage it is not important if the sections of the offence are written in small letter and in small space
5) that in the present case Doctors who examined the injured and the deceased were in connivance of the accused persons and they have tried to give some benefits to them by not preparing the reports fairly as the age of the injured Man Singh who has filed the counter affidavit is about 58 years but the doctor has mentioned his age in the medical examination report as 38 years. The injured has given an application to District Magistrate Kaushambi making complaint against the doctor who examined him in the S.R.N. Hospital by alleging therein that the doctor has mentioned in the medical examination report,only one gun shot wound of entry whereas he has received its exit wound also and he has received gun shot injury on the thumb of right hand and due to that injury his thumb was totally cut off but these injuries are not mentioned in the injury report. Therefore, he made request that his injuries may be examined by a Board. Of Doctors. The same application was given to the C.M.O. Kaushambi also but the C.M.O. Kaushambi wrote a letter to the Additional Director Health for necessary action but it is mentioned that it was not possible to examine the injured by medical board because he was examined at S.R.N. Hospital, Allahabad. The complaint was made by the injured Man Singh to the D.M. Allahabad, the same was sent to the C.M.O. Allahabad for taking necessary action but it is very unfortunate that no board was constituted for the medical examination of the injured Man Singh because the applicant and other co-accused are powerful and influential persons.
6) that the applicants are named accused who caused injuries on the deceased and the injured persons , the F.I.R. was promptly lodged and there is injured witness also so they are not entitled for bail. In case they are released on bail, they shall temper with the evidence and they will not permit any witness to give evidence in the court.
Considering the facts and circumstances of the case and the submission made by the learned counsel for the for the applicants and the learned A.G.A. and the learned counsel for the complainant and considering the nature of the offence in which two persons have lost their lives and one person received injuries caused by fire arm, F.I.R. was promptly lodged and the alleged occurrence had taken place in day time at about 9 a.m. on 21.6.2005 in front of a shop and the injures were caused by fire arm and there are injured witness also and without expressing any opinion the merit of the case the applicants are not entitled for bail therefore, the prayer for bail is refused.
Accordingly this application is rejected.
