On the shouting of the injured, Ram Naresh and others reached on the place of occurrence then the applicant and co-accused run away from the alleged place of occurrence. The injured was medically examined on 31.5.2005 at 5.00 P.M. The medical examination report shows lacerated wounds on the left side of mandible and on middle finger of right hand. The injuries were kept under observation and advised for x-ray.

It is contended by the learned counsel for the applicant that that in the present case there was no motive or intention of the applicant to commit the offence and the F.I.R. was lodged under section 324 I.P.C. but subsequently, the offence was converted under section 307 I.P.C.
It is further contended by the learned counsel for the applicant that the injured is a hale and hearty and the F.I.R. was lodged only in doubt and suspicion because according to the prosecution version he had gone in the company of the applicant and other co-accused. It is further contended that the applicant is a minor and his date of birth is 7.7.1988, according to the mark sheet of IXth class and even on the basis of the allegation made against the applicant, no offence under section 307 I.P.C. is made out.
It is opposed by the learned A.G.A. and the learned counsel for the complainant by submitting that the applicant is the main accused who caused injuries on the person of the injured by country made pistol. The F.I.R. was properly lodged because the distance of the police station was 3 km from the alleged place of occurrence. The F.I.R. was registered under section 324 I.P.C. It was not properly registered because on the basis of the allegation made in the F.I.R. itself the offence under section 307 I.P.C. was made out. This irregularity was corrected during investigation by converting the offence under section 307 I.P.C. The injured has received three injuries on mandible which is vital part of the body. The x-ray report given by the District Hospital, Fatehpur is procured document because it has been issued in collusion of the applicant. The condition of the injured is very serious as his mandible has been damaged. The treatment of the injured was done at Jivan Jayoti Hospital. According to the discharged card there was three fractures of mandible and the injured is not in a position to speak properly.
