They were asked again not to beat then the applicant having a licensed rifle, co-accused Saheb Singh and Bablu Singh having unauthorised fire arm chased the first informant and others. Dilip Kumar and Dinesh have made attempt to pacify the matter but the applicant and co-accused Saheb Singh, Bablu Singh discharged shots by their respective weapon, consequently deceased Ramapati, deceased Ram Nihore and injured Saraswati ran to save their lives but they were chased by the applicant and others discharged shots consequently Ramapati, deceased Ram Nihore sustained injuries, deceased Ramapati died instantaneously. Due to the above act done by the applicant and others persons a panic was created and a atmosphere of fear and terror was created.

Heard Sri V.P. Srivastava, Senior Advocate, assisted by Sri Ram Lal Singh and Sri Lav Srivastava, learned counsel for the applicant, learned A.G.A. for the State of U.P. and Sri Braham Singh and Sunil Kumar Tiwari, learned counsel for the complainant.
It is contended by the learned counsel for the applicant:
1.That the prosecution story is false, concocted and highly improbable.
2.That the prosecution story is not corroborated by the medical evidence because according to the F.I.R. the applicant and other co-accused persons discharged shots from the back side but both of the deceased received injuries on front side. Therefore, the manner of the occurrence has been changed during investigation by alleging that the injuries were caused from the front side.
3.That according to the prosecution version the applicant was armed with licence rifle but the direction of the injuries are upward to downward which suggest that the injuries were not caused as alleged by the prosecution.
4.That the prosecution story is not corroborated by the spot inspect note and the site plan.
5.That the alleged motive is absolutely false, baseless because the previous election was not contested by any of the first informant side, therefore, there was no question of enmity.
6.That the applicant is a peaceful person. He is not a previous convict and not wanted in any other case. Therefore, he may be released on bail.
In reply to the above contentions it is submitted by the learned A.G.A. ad the learned counsel for the complainant:
I.That the alleged occurrence had taken place in a broad daylight. Its F.I.R. has been lodged within 1,1/2 hours. The distance of the police station was about 5 k.m. Specific role of causing injury by rifle has been assigned to the applicant. In this case two persons have lost their lives. The injuries were caused by the fire arm and several persons are injured.
II.That the applicant is a very powerful man and the first informant and injured persons belong to scheduled cast, weaker section of the society and the applicant and other co-accused persons have committed the alleged offence without any reason, in order to establish his supremacy. In case, the applicant is released on bail, he shall temper with evidence. Therefore, he may not be released on bail
Considering the facts that the alleged occurrence had taken place in broad day light, F.I.R. was promptly lodged, role of causing injury by rifle has been assigned to the applicant, two persons have lost their lives, several persons are injured, the cause of death was due to fire arm injury and there are injured witnesses to support the prosecution story, the gravity of offence is too much and other facts and circumstances of the case and submission made by both side, 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.
