CRA No. 582/2010

2. In brief the prosecution case is that on 25.01.2006 at

about 11:00 pm at Motilal Nagar, PS Nishatpura, Rijwan

Khan (PW-9) heard the noise of a quarrel outside his house.

He came out from his house and saw that the appellants and

other co-accused were assaulting Akram Bhaijan with their

knives and abusing him. The appellants were annoyed with

Akram. They suspected that, Akram had informed the police

(mukhbiri) about their profession. They inflicted blows of

their knives on his head, chest, stomach, back and legs. They

intended to kill Akram. Rijwan (PW-9) went there to rescue

Akram, but the appellant Shaukat assaulted him with a knife

on his left palm. Khalid, Mohd. Azam and Javed also came to

rescue Akram. Akram fell down due to fatal injuries. Then

appellants fled away. The persons who were present there

brought him to Hamidia Hospital, where doctor declared him

dead. Then, an FIR was lodged by Rijwan (PW-9) at police

station, Nishatpura. The police registered crime under

Section 302/149 and 324 of IPC against all the appellants and

other accused persons. After investigation, charge sheet has

been filed against them under the same provision before the

concerned Court.

3. After committal of the case learned trial Court

conducted trial and held that except the accused Sahib @
4 CRA No. 2452/2007
CRA No. 2004/2008
CRA No. 582/2010

Afzal and Mazid @ Chhotu, all the appellants are liable for

committing the murder of deceased (Akram) in furtherance of

their common object to kill Akram. They are members of

unlawful assembly to cause death of Akram. At the time of

occurrence, they were armed with deadly weapons (like

knife). Hence, they have committed offence of rioting and

armed with deadly weapon and caused death of Akram which

is punishable under Section 148 and 302/149 of IPC. At the

same time, the appellants Mohd. Shaukat has voluntary

caused simple injuries to witness Rijwan (PW-9) by his knife.

Hence, he was convicted under Section 324 of IPC and

sentenced for life imprisonment and rigorous imprisonment

for one year, respectively. The respondents Mohd. Sahib @

Afzal and Mazid were convicted only under Section 25 Arms

Act and sentenced as mention above.

4. The appellants have challenged the aforesaid

findings on the grounds that learned trial Court has

committed an error while convicted them on weak type of

evidence. There were many contradictions, omissions and

improvements in the versions of the prosecution witnesses.

The testimony of all the eye witnesses is entirely

unbelievable. The trial Court has failed to see that there was

a sudden quarrel which was not a result of pre-meditative act.
5 CRA No. 2452/2007

CRA No. 2004/2008
CRA No. 582/2010

The appellants were not the hardened criminals. The learned

trial Court ought to have acquitted them. The prosecution has

not proved the seizure of the knives. The medical evidence

has also not established that the appellants had a common

intention to commit murder of the deceased. The evidence of

prosecution witnesses are not corroborated by any other

independent witnesses. Hence, evidence of prosecution is

tainted. Many illegalities and irregularities were committed

by the Investigating Officer. It was also alleged that defence

ought to have been accepted in favor of appellants. Hence,

impugned judgment is liable to be set aside and appellants

are liable to be acquitted. State has challenged the acquittal

of the appellants Mohd. Sahib @ Afzal and Mazid from

charges under Sections 147, 148, 149 and 302 of IPC on the

grounds that the trial Court has erred in not appreciating the

entire evidence in proper prospective. The findings of trial

Court are illegal and liable to be set aside and have prayed

for conviction of the respondents Mohd. Sahib @ Afzal and

Mazid for rioting with deadly weapons and murder of Akram

under Section 148 and 302/149 of IPC.

5. We have heard all the learned counsel for the

parties at length and perused the record.
6 CRA No. 2452/2007

CRA No. 2004/2008
CRA No. 582/2010

6. The point for determination is that –

Whether the appellants are rightly convicted under

the charges levelled against them.

7. To establish the crime against them, the

prosecution is based on the testimony of eye-witness Rizwan

(PW-9) who is an injured eye-witness. He deposed that at the

time of incident on 25.01.2006 at about 10:30 pm to 11:00

pm, he was present at his house. He heard noise of a quarrel

outside and came out. He saw that all the appellants had

surrounded Akram (since deceased) and were abusing him.

They were armed with knives and told Akram that he was the

informant of the police against the appellants. The appellants

inflicted blows on him using their knives. He sustained

several injuries on his stomach, head, back, leg, chest, etc.

He fell down on the ground. Rizwan (PW-9) reached there to

rescue Akram. Appellant Shaukat assaulted Rizwan by knife.

Rizwan sustained injuries on his left palm. On hearing the

hue and cry, Azam, Khalid, Javed and other persons also

came there and tried to save Akram and Rizwan from the

appellants. Then, the appellants ran away from the spot.

10. Akram and Rizwan were brought to the police

station and on the advice of the police, they were brought to
7 CRA No. 2452/2007
CRA No. 2004/2008
CRA No. 582/2010

Hamidia Hospital. Doctors declared Akram dead. Police

also came there. Dehati Nalishi Ex. P/26 has been lodged by

Rizwan (PW-9). The testimony of Rizwan (PW-9) is also

corroborated by the other eye-witness, Mohd. Azam (PW-10),

Khalid (PW-11) and Javed (PW-13). All the eye-witnesses

strongly proved their presence at the scene of occurrence.

11. S.R.Yadav (PW-20) Inspector deposed that on the

same day, he received information about the incident. He

reached Hamidia Hospital and lodged Dehati Nalishi Ex.

P/26 as narrated by Rizwan (PW-9). Dehati Nalishi (Ex.

P/26) was received by Inspector R.S.Rai (PW-17). He

deposed that FIR Ex. P/34 was registered by him on

26.01.2006 at 1:00 am under Section 302, 149 and 324 of

Indian Penal Code against the appellants. Dehati Nalishi Ex.

P/26 and FIR Ex. P/34 also corroborate the testimony of

Rizwan and other eye-witnesses.

12. Both the documents clearly establish the

involvement of all the appellants. Names of all the other

eye-witnesses are also mentioned in the FIR Ex. P/34 and

dehati nalishi Ex. P/26. The promptness in lodging the FIR

by names of the assailants and all the material facts

mentioned in FIR itself indicate the truthfulness of the
8 CRA No. 2452/2007
CRA No. 2004/2008
CRA No. 582/2010

incident. It prevents the possibility of false implication of

the appellants in the concocted story. There is no material

contradictions and omission in the testimonies of eye-

witnesses. There is no inconsistency between their

testimonies and with the FIR which inspires confidence and

establish that the evidence of the eye-witnesses is

trustworthy. Hence, it it not liable to be disbelieved.

13. It is also pertinent to mention here that the

Rizwan (PW-9) is injured eye-witness. The testimony of

injured eye-witness has great evidentiary value. In case of

Mukesh Vs. State (NCT) of Delhi [(2017) 6 SCC 1], the Hon’ble

Supreme Court has held that –

“The injuries found on the person of who
was injured in the same occurrence lends
assurance to his testimony that he was
present at the time of the occurrence along
with the prosecutrix. The evidence of an
injured witness is entitled to a greater
weight and the testimony of such a witness
is considered to be beyond reproach and
reliable. Firm, cogent and convincing
ground is required to discard the evidence
of an injured witness”.

14. Dr. Pravendra Malik (PW-14) examined Rizwan

(PW-9) on the date of incident at about 11:00 pm. He found

an incised wound of about 2.5 x 1 cms on his left palm and

internal tissues were visible from the cut. Rizwan was not
9 CRA No. 2452/2007
CRA No. 2004/2008
CRA No. 582/2010

able to move his ring finger and little finger.

15. As per Dr. Pravendra Malik, all the injuries were

caused by hard and sharp object. In his cross-examination,

he strongly denied that the injuries were caused by broken

glass. The evidence of Dr. Pravendra Malik is corroborated

by the testimony of other eye-witnesses particularly the

testimony of Rizwan (PW-9). Dr. J.K.Chourasia (PW-12)

also corroborated the testimony of Dr. Pravendra Malik.

Hence, it is properly believed by the trial Court.

16. Dr. J.K.Chourasia (PW-12) also examined the

injuries of deceased Akram on the same date of incident at

around 11:20 pm at Hamidia Hospital. Dr. Ashok Sharma

(PW-19) conducted autopsy of the deceased Akram and

found the following injuries on the person of the deceased :

(i) Abrasion on left forehead obliquely
of 6×0.5 cms.

(ii) Incised wound on mid forehead of
3×0.1 cms.

(xiv) Lacerated wound on right side of

(xvi) Incised wound on left parietal region

17. Dr. Ashok Sharma (PW-19) opined that deceased

died due to excessive bleeding from several fatal wounds and

coma. All the injuries were caused by hard, sharp and pointed

objects and were sufficient to cause death of the deceased in

ordinary course of nature within 24 hours from postmortem.

He also found cut impression on the clothes of the deceased.

Parallel to the injuries found on the body of the deceased.

18. Inspector S.R. Yadav (PW-20) stated that on

27.01.2006, he recorded the memorandums of the appellants

Mohd. Shaukat, Mohd. Sohel and Mohd. Soyeb as Ex.P/6,

Ex.P/7 and Ex.P/8. According to their memorandums, he

seized a knife from the house of the appellant Mohd.

Shaukat. Similarly, he recovered another knife from the

possession of appellant Mohd. Sohel and a knife was
12 CRA No. 2452/2007
CRA No. 2004/2008
CRA No. 582/2010

recovered from the possession of appellant Mohd. Soyeb.

Different knives were seized form the possession of Mohd.

Shaukat, Mohd. Sohel and Mohd. Soyeb vide seizure memo

Ex.P/12. Ex.P/13 and Ex.P/14. S.R. Yadav (PW-20) has also

recovered three different knives as per the memorandums of

of appellants Sahab @ Afzal, Mohd. Majid @ Chotu and

Shahzad vide seizure memo Ex.P/16, Ex.P/15 and Ex.P/17.

19. Dr. Ashok Sharma (PW-19) examined all the six

knives which were hard, sharp and pointed objects. He

deposed that he took a picture of the aforesaid weapons. The

injuries mentioned in his postmortem report (Ex.P/36) and

cut marks found on the clothes of the deceased can be caused

by the aforesaid weapons. His report Ex.P/38 has also

supported the prosecution case properly. It is important to

mention here that learned counsel for the appellants has not

cross-examined Dr. Ashok Sharma (Pw-19) nor he has

challenged the doctor's opinion. In our considered opinion

the testimony of Dr. Ashok Sharma (PW-19) has duly

corroborated the direct evidence. There is no reason to

disbelieve the opinion of Dr. Ashok Sharma which has

further corroborated by other evidence on record and doctor's

opinion. All the weapons were sent for FSL examination by

S.R.Yadav (PW-20). In the FSL report (Ex.P/40) blood stains
13 CRA No. 2452/2007
CRA No. 2004/2008
CRA No. 582/2010

were found on the soil collected from the spot and clothes of

the deceased and particularly all the six knives as Article-E,

F, G, H, I J all were blood stained, which were recovered

from the appellants. In four knives as Article-E, F, H J,

the expert confirmed that human blood was present on it.

Due to the technical reason that spots of blood were

disintegrated and quantity of blood was not sufficient.

Origin of blood was not confirmed in FSL report.

20. In case of State of Rajasthan Vs. Teja Ram

Ors. [(1999) 3 SCC 507], Hon'ble Supreme Court has held

as under :

"Failure of the Serologist to detect the origin of
the blood, due to disintegration of the serum in
the meanwhile, does not mean that the blood
stuck on the axe would not have been human
blood at all. Sometimes it happens, either
because the stain is too insufficient or due to
hematological changes and piasmatic
coagulation that a Serologist might fail to detect
the origin of the blood. Will it then mean that
the blood would be of some other origin? Such
a guess work that blood on the other axe would
have been animal blood is unrealistic and far
fetched in the broad spectrum of this ease. The
effort of the criminal court should not be to
prowl for imaginative doubts. Unless the doubt
is of a reasonable dimension which a judicially
conscientious mind entertains with some
objectivity no benefit can be claimed by the
accused.

It cannot be said that in all cases where there
was failure of detecting the origin of the. blood
the circumstance arising from recovery of the
14 CRA No. 2452/2007
CRA No. 2004/2008
CRA No. 582/2010

weapon would stand relegated to disutility."

21. In the case of Sunil Clifford Daniel Vs. State of

Punjab [(2012) 11 SCC 205] similarly held as under :

"A similar issue arose for consideration by this
Court in Gura Singh v. State of Rajasthan,
AIR 2001 SC 330, wherein the Court, relying
upon earlier judgments of this Court,
particularly in Prabhu Babaji Navie v. State of
Bombay, AIR 1956 SC 51; Raghav Prapanna
Tripathi v. State of U.P., AIR 1963 SC 74; and
Teja Ram (supra) observed that a failure by the
serologist to detect the origin of the blood due to
dis-integration of the serum, does not mean that
the blood stuck on the axe would not have been
human blood at all. Sometimes it is possible,
either because the stain is too insufficient, or due
to haematological changes and plasmatic
coagulation, that a serologist may fail to detect
the origin of the blood. However, in such a case,
unless the doubt is of a reasonable dimension,
which a judicially conscientious mind may
entertain, with some objectivity, no benefit can
be claimed by the accused, in this regard.
In view of the above, the Court finds it
impossible to accept the submission that, in the
absence of the report regarding the origin of the
blood, the accused cannot be convicted, upon an
observation that it is only because of lapse of
time that the classification of the blood cannot
be determined. Therefore, no advantage can be
conferred upon the accused, to enable him to
claim any benefit, and the report of dis-
integration of blood etc. cannot be termed as a
missing link, on the basis of which, the chain of
circumstances may be presumed to be broken.

As the recoveries of the bloodstained gunny
bag, dumb-bell, tie, etc. were made on the
basis of the disclosure statement of the
15 CRA No. 2452/2007
CRA No. 2004/2008
CRA No. 582/2010

appellant himself, the chain of
circumstances is therefore complete."

22. Therefore, we come to the conclusion that there is

ample and sufficient evidence against the appellants to

establish that they were gathered together with common

objective of committing murder of the deceased. They jointly

acted in a cruel and unusual manner towards deceased Akram

who was unarmed.

23. We are not convinced with the submission of

learned counsel for the appellants that this was a case which

falls under exception 4 of Section 300 of IPC is quoted here

in below:-

"Exception 4. Culpable homicide is not
murder if it is committed without premeditation
in a sudden fight in the heat of passion upon a
sudden quarrel and without the offender having
taken undue advantage or acted in a cruel or
unusual manner."

The language of Exception 4 to Section
300 is, thus, clear that culpable homicide is not
murder if it is committed without premeditation
in a sudden fight in the heat of passion upon a
sudden quarrel provided the offender has not
taken undue advantage or acted in a cruel or
unusual manner. In this case, there is no evidence
to show that the deceased was armed in any
manner. On the other hand, the appellants were
armed with knives and attacked the deceased on
him even after he fell down. Thus, all the
appellants, who were the offenders, have taken
undue advantage and acted in a cruel and unusual
16 CRA No. 2452/2007
CRA No. 2004/2008
CRA No. 582/2010

manner towards the deceased who is not proved
to have been armed.

24. It was also stated by the eye witnesses that during

the incident, deceased had fallen down then surrounded and

assaulted by the accused persons. There are 26 fatal injuries

on all over of the body of the deceased including his head,

chest, abdomen, spleen and intestine. All the injuries were

caused by hard, sharp and pointed weapons as narrated by Dr.

Ashok Sharma (PW-19) in his report Ex.P/38. In our

opinion, Section 149 of IPC properly invoked for convicting

the aforesaid six appellants herein. With regard to the

acquittal of the appellants Afzal and Majid from the charges

under Sections 147, 148 and 302 read with Section 149 of

IPC.

25. Learned trial Court has held that as per the

defence version their presence on the spot is doubtful. All the

eye witnesses have clearly identified them by their names.

They have also established their active involvement with the

crime along with the other appellants. Police has also seized

knives from their possession, as per their memorandums.

Blood stains were found on their knives.

26. In our considered opinion, plea of alibi which was
17 CRA No. 2452/2007
CRA No. 2004/2008
CRA No. 582/2010

taken by them is purely an afterthought. All the eye witnesses

have not accepted that at the time of the incident appellant

Afzal and Majid were not present on the spot. It is also

important to note that Rizwan (PW-9) is an injured eye

witness. No suggestion has been given to him about "not

presence of the appellants Sahib @ Afzal and Majid" on the

spot or with regard to their plea of alibi. Similarly, no

suggestion has been given to the other eye witnesses nor they

accepted the absence of the aforesaid appellants from the

spot. It is apparently clear that the story of defence witnesses

is after thought. It is made during the stage of defence

evidence. On the aforesaid reason we are not inclined to

accept the aforesaid defence version in favour of the

appellants Sahib @ Afzal and Majid.

27. In case of Pawan Kumar Vs. State of Himachal

Pradesh, (2017) 7 SCC 780 the Hon'ble Supreme Court has

held as under:

"First we shall deal with the nature of
jurisdiction the High Court exercises when it
reverses a judgment of acquittal to that of
conviction in exercise of appellate jurisdiction.
It is put forth by the learned Additional
Advocate General that the prosecution has
been able to establish the active role played by
the accused by adducing cogent evidence and
hence, the reversal of the judgment of acquittal
by the High Court is absolutely flawless. In
Jadunath Singh and others v. State of Uttar
18 CRA No. 2452/2007
CRA No. 2004/2008
CRA No. 582/2010

Pradesh [(1971) 3 SCC 577], a three-Judge
Bench of this Court has opined:- "22. This
Court has consistently taken the view that in an
appeal against acquittal the High Court has full
power to review at large all the evidence and to
reach the conclusion that upon that evidence
the order of acquittal should be reversed. This
power of the appellate court in an appeal
against acquittal was formulated by the
Judicial Committee of the Privy Council in
Sheo Swarup v. King Emperor [AIR 1934 PC
227] and Nur Mohammad v. Emperor [AIR
1945 PC 151]. These two decisions have been
consistently referred to in the judgments of this
Court as laying down the true scope of the
power of an appellate court in hearing criminal
appeals (see Surajpal Singh v. State [AIR
1952 SC 52]; Sanwat Singh v. State of
Rajasthan [AIR 1961 SC 715]; Sudha
Renukaiah Ors. Vs. State of Andhra
Pradesh [(2017) 13 SCC 81] and Gandi
Doddabasappa @ Gandhi Basavaraj Vs.
State of Karnataka [(2017) 5 SCC 415])."

28. In our opinion, learned trial Court has committed

an error in acquitting Sahib @ Afzal and Majid form the

charges under Sections 147, 148 and 302 read with Section

149 of IPC.

29. Accordingly, CRA No. 582/2010 filed by the State

for convicting Sahib @ Afzal and Majid is hereby allowed.

Their acquittal from the aforesaid charges is hereby set aside.

They are also convicted under Sections 147, 148 and 302

read with Section 149 of IPC and are awarded sentence as

follows :

19 CRA No. 2452/2007

CRA No. 2004/2008
CRA No. 582/2010

Section Act Imprisonment Fine In
default of

148 Indian Penal Code RI for three years 1000/- 6 months
149/302 Indian Penal Code Life Imprisonment 5000/- 6 months
All the sentences shall run concurrently.

30. CRA No. 2452/2007 filed by the appellant Sahib

@ Afzal and CRA No. 2004/2008 filed by the other

appellants are hereby dismissed.

31. It is directed that the appellants Sahib @ Afzal and

Majid shall immediately surrender before the trial Court for

undergoing remaining part of their sentence under Sections

147, 148 and 302 read with Section 149 of IPC and Section

25 (1)(B) or Arms Act. In case the other appellants are on

bail, they shall surrender immediately before the trial Court

to serve the remaining part of their jail sentence, failing

which the trial Court shall take appropriate action against

them under intimation to the Registry of this Court.

32. Copy of this judgment be sent to the Court below

for information and compliance alongwith its record.
