The prosecution story in brief is that the F.I.R. of this case has been lodged by Vinod Kumar at P.S. Pachokhara on 11.11.2005 at 12.05 p.m. in respect of the incident which had occurred on 11.11.2005 at about 9.30 a.m. The distance of the police station was about 3 k.m. from the alleged place of occurrence. The F.I.R. was lodged against the applicant and four other co-accused persons.
It is alleged that on 11.11.2005 at about 9.30 a.m. the deceased Brahm Dutt Dixit, father of the first informant, was going to Pachokhara by his motorcycle. The first informant along with his brother Neeraj was also lagging behind on a separate motorcycle, near the garden of Prem Singh, one Maruti Car was parked. As soon as his motorcycle reached there, the applicant and other co-accused persons, came out from the Maruti Car and one of the co-accused Pramod exhorted that due to the deceased he was defeated in the election that is why he would be killed by them. At his exhortation all the co-accused persons who were armed with country made pistol intercepted the deceased and the co-accused Pramod discharged shots, which hit the deceased. After receiving the injuries, he fell down in the field, which was at a short distance. Thereafter, the applicant, co-accused Tejvir and Vikas also caused gun shot injury on the person of the deceased a shot was discharged at the first informant also but fortunately he did not receive any injury. The alleged occurrence was witnessed by the persons who were working in the nearby fields. After committing the alleged offence the miscreants fled away towards Pachokhara. The deceased in an injured condition was taken to Kamayani Hospital Agra where he was declared dead. Thereafter, the first informant along with the dead body of the deceased went to the police station and lodged the F.I.R.

It is contended by the learned counsel for the applicant:
1.That the family members of the applicant have been falsely implicated in the present case.
2.That the presence of the first informant and other-accused persons at the place of occurrence is highly doubtful because they did not make any attempt to save the life of the deceased even according to the prosecution version they were chance witnesses.
3.That the deceased was the village Pradhan. He had multi cornered enmity.
4.That there was no motive or intention for the applicant to commit the alleged offence.
5.That the F.I.R. of this case is ante timed, it was not in existence at the preparation of the inquest report because the inquest report was prepared under section 302 I.P.C. subsequently, sections 147,148,149,307 I.P.C. were added.
6.That the recovery of the country made pistol at the pointing out of the applicant has been planted by the I.O. which has not been supported by ny independent witness.
7.That the alleged occurrence had taken place in a lonely place. It was committed by some unknown persons. The dead body was found, thereafter, the first informant and other persons who reached there subsequently.
8.That the prosecution story is not corroborated with the medical evidence because it has been specifically alleged that the shot discharged by Pramod hit the deceased. Thereafter, the applicant and co-accused Vikas and Tejvir discharged their shots but the deceased had received only three gun shot wounds of entry, which shows that there is false implication of the accused persons.
9.That the applicant is a man of peace. He is not a previous convict nor he is wanted in any other case and there is no chance of his absconding and tempering with the evidence. Therefore, he may be released on bail.

I.That in the present case F.I.R. has been promptly lodged.
II.That the alleged occurrence had been witnessed by the first informant and other witnesses.
III.That the prosecution story is fully corroborated. It is alleged that the injuries by firearms and the deceased has received three gunshot wound of entry and its exit wound.

V.That the applicant was having strong motive to commit the alleged offence. One co-accused, brother in law of yogesh, is still absconding. In case, the applicant is released on bail, he shall temper with the evidence. Therefore, he may be reused on bail.
Considering the facts and circumstances of the case and the submissions made by the learned counsel for the applicant and the leaned, considering the gravity and nature of the offence, without expressing any opinion on the merits of the case, the applicant is not entitled to be released on bail.
