The applicant was armed with rifle and co-accused Abhijeet was armed with D.B.B.L. gun and the remaining co-accused were armed with lathi and danda.

In the meantime the deceased Sant Ram came there from Jhansi and the accused persons ran towards the deceased Sant Ram. He ran to save his life.

Heard Sri Satish Trivedi, Senior Advocate, assisted by Sri Vivek Shandilya and Sri Sudhir Shandilya and Sri R.K. Kaushik, learned counsel for the applicant and the learned A.G.A.
It is contended by the learned counsel for the applicant
I.That according to the prosecution version itself the applicant was under intoxication of liquors and he was having no sense.
II.That the prosecution story is highly improbable even there is no motive for the applicant to commit the murder of the deceased. All of sudden he came there and firing was done at him.
III.That it is alleged that the applicant and the co-accused Abhijeet Singh fired at the deceased by their respective weapon when he was in the back of the middle school. After receiving the injuries he died but according to the cite plan, the place where the deceased was allegedly murdered is shown about 2 furlong from the middle school.
IV.That in the present case the F.I.R. is anti timed. It was not in existence at the time of preparation of the inquest report. According to the prosecution version the F.I.R. was lodged on 17.9.2005 at 9.15 p.m. but the proceedings of the inquest were initiated on 18.9.2005 at 7.30 a.m. There is no proper explanation for the delay in preparation of the inquest report. The name of the accused and their weapons are not named in the panchayatnama, which shows that at that time the name of the accused were not known.
V.That the prosecution story is not corroborated by the medical evidence because according to the post mortem examination report 5 anti mortem injuries were found in which injury nos. 1,2 and 3 were lacerated wounds, injury no. 4 is a fire arm wound of entry, which was having tattooing and injury no.5 is its exit wound. There is no explanation of lacerated wounds i.e. injury nos. 1,2 and 3. Rigor mortis passed off from head and neck but it was present on the four limbs, which shows that the deceased died about 24 hours prior to the post mortem examination.
VI.That according to the prosecution version the applicant was having rifle and other co-accused was having gun but the deceased had received only one firearm wound of entry. It has not been specified as to whose shot hit the deceased. The applicant was having no license of the rifle and during investigation the rifle used in the commission of the alleged offence has not been recovered from the possession of the applicant.
VII.That without any reason section 2/3 of U.P. Gangster and Anti Social Activities(Prevention) Act has been added during investigation of this case.
VIII.That admittedly the applicant and co-accused Ajay have also received injuries in the said incident, which shows that the prosecution has not come with clean hands.
IX.That three persons namely Bhagwat, Ramesh and Mithila received injuries in the said incident. It was also alleged that one Jagdish Dubey was also beaten by lathi and danda but there is no medical examination report of Jagdish Dubey.
X.That according to the prosecution version, the firing was done at the deceased in running condition but the gun shot injury shows that it was caused from a close range, which belies the whole prosecution story.
XI.That the applicant is innocent and he has not committed the alleged offence and he has been falsely implicated in the said case due to ill will of the first informant.
XII.That the co-accused Abhijeet alias Abhijeet Singh who has allegedly fired at the deceased by D.B.B.L. gun has been released on bail by this Court on 10.2.2006 in criminal misc. bail application no. 2504 of 2005. The case of the applicant is on the same footing with the case of the co-accused. Therefore, he is also entitled to get the benefit of parity.
It is opposed by the learned A.G.A by submitting :-
1.That in the present case the alleged occurrence had taken place on 17.9.2005 at about 6.30 p.m. The distance of the police station is about 15 k.m. In the said incident one person has lost his life and five persons namely Bhagwat, Ramesh and Mithila and Jagdish and Dhan Singh received injuries. The injured witnesses have fully supported the prosecution story. At the stage of investigation the inquest report was prepared in the morning of 18.9.2005 because there was no proper light in the night of 17/18.9.2005. It has been clearly mentioned in the inquest report also as such the delay has been explained. The deceased was chased and thereafter he was murdered. The chasing was done from the back of the middle of the school but he was murdered at the place ''b' it is clearly mentioned in the F.I.R. itself. The gun shot wound entry was having the blackening and tattooing, which shows that at the time of chasing of the deceased, the applicant was at closed distance. According to the post mortem examination report also the deceased had received five injuries in which injury nos. 1,2 and 3 were lacerated wounds. The lacerated wounds may be caused by the firearm also. There is no inconsistency between the prosecution version and the post mortem examination report. The injured had received injuries caused by hard and blunt object as alleged by the prosecution and that the applicant will not get any benefit of being under intoxication.
2.That the co-accused Abhijeet has been released on bail by this court by distinguishing his case with the case of the applicant by observing that prima facie injuries sustained by the victim did not appear to be caused by D.B.B.L.
3.That the applicant is the main accused whose shot hit the deceased. Therefore, the applicant is not may not be released on bail.
Considering the facts and circumstances of the case and the submission made by the learned counsel for the applicant and the learned A.G.A. and considering the fact and circumstances of the case and the nature of the offence and without expressing any opinion on the merits of the case, the applicant is not entitled for bail. Therefore, the prayer for bail is refused.
Accordingly this application is rejected.
