Prosecution case is that the appellant on 13.9.2001 at about 8 a.m. belaboured Narmadeshwar Mishra and his nephew Sudhir Mishra. At that time Barak Mishra and Tiwari Mishra were also with Manoj Mishra, the appellant and they also caused injuries to Narmadeshwar. It has come in evidence that Narmadeshwar Mishra is blind person since birth and at the time of incident he was about 65 years old. At that time Narmadeshwar was going to Mohamdabad in connection with some date in a case. Manoj Mishra the appellant and two others had enmity with the complainant Suresh Mishra and his uncle Narmadeshwar Mishra. They abused Narmadeshwar Mishra and they started belabouring him. The injury report shows that Narmadeshwar Mishra received fracture in his right hand as well as fracture in his frontal parietal bone. There was also swelling in the brain and he was shifted to private nursing home at Varanasi where he was admitted in the Hospital on 13.9.2001 and was discharged on 27.9.2001. C.T. Scan of the Head shows that there was fracture based on middle cranial fosa, left temporal and parietal bones and there was mild generalised brain oedema.
The case of the other two accused has been separated as they are juvenile.
Learned counsel for the appellant has contended that he has been wrongly convicted without there being any legal evidence against him and that the prosecution did not prove the X-ray and the C.T.Scan report and that he was taken to a private Nursing Home and not to a Government Hospital in Varanasi.
Learned A.G.A has contended that the accused and two others caused grievous injuries which could have proved fatal as has also been stated by Doctor D.K. Gupta, P.W.-4. The statements of Narmadeshwar Mishra and Sudheer the injured person show that the accused Manoj caused injuries to them and that there is no reason for their false deposition. The appellant has caused grievous injuries to a blind old man which could have proved fatal on account of his previous enmity and in the circumstances is not entitled to be released on bail and his prayer for bail is liable to be refused.
Prayer for bail is hereby refused.
