It has further been submitted that from the statement of the injured, it appears that one pistol and one gun was in the possession of the applicant when he caused fire arm injuries to the injured. The injured has stated that she snatched the pistol from the applicant and threw it below the cot and caught hold of the gun of the applicant and shouted and then the other people came and he ran away.
Counsel for the applicant has pointed out that the prosecution allegations are not reliable since in the memo of recovery, the police has recovered the pistol and the gun both at the pointing out of the applicant when the injured has stated that she snatched the pistol from the applicant and threw it below the cot and he ran away only with the gun.
