MOOT PROBLEM 1. That on the night of 23/24 January 2016, at around 12:35am, A.S.I Harpal Singh got an information (marked as DD No. 32 PS Sonia Vihar) from constable Dinesh (ballet No.1516/E) over telephone at 3D Hospital that Sh. Mallan brother of victim, named Lallan Prasad, aged 21 years R/o: H-1111, Gali No.14, Second Pusta, Sonia Vihar, Delhi, admitted him in a critical condition bearing MLC No. E-33432. 2. That on receiving the information, A.S.I Harpal Singh and Constable Bijender (ballet No.1772/E) who were on duty immediately rushed to the 3D Hospital for conducting necessary legal inquiry. They found that Sh. Lallan Prasad S/o Sh. Chander Prasad, R/o: H1111, Gali No.14, Second Pusta, Sonia Vihar, Delhi, was admitted by his brother Mallan bearing MLC No. E-33432 with multiple stab wounds on both arms, chest wall, scalp and right side of the gluteal region. The copy of the Medico Legal Report No.1 and 2 along with Schematic Injury Diagram Sheet is attached separately herewith. The doctor suggested that the patient is unfit for statement and declared that the injuries were perpetrated with a sharp edged weapon. 3. That in the 3D Hospital, Sh. Ballan S/o Sh Chander Prasad i.e., another brother of the victim Lallan Prasad, gave his statement as under:“Stated that I, Ballan Prasad, live with my parents i.e., father, mother, brothers and sisters in our own home H-1111, Gali No.14, Second Pusta, Sonia Vihar, Delhi-94, and I am studying in Deen Dayal Upadhaya College, Delhi University. We were having a property dispute case with our maternal uncle and his sons since 2003. The decision of the case was held in our favour in August, 2015. Since then our cousins were not happy and developed inimical relations with us. On 23rd Janaury 2016, at around 11:30 pm, after having dinner, me and my brother Lallan went for a walk near Budh Bazaar Road. My brother Lallan was stepping faster than me. As soon as, he was 50-60 steps ahead of me, one of my cousins named Jeysha and his friend Tashi started fighting with him. In the meantime, Jeysha’s four brothers named Kishan, Bishaan, Disham and Geysha ran towards the fighting spot and got involved in the fight. They caught Lallan and one of them named Geysha gave instructions to others by shouting “Iska Kaam Khatm Kar do.” As a consequence, the rest of the brothers named 13
Kishan, Bishaan and Disham and their friend Tashi dragged my brother into a small gali and Jeysha started stabbing my brother Lallan. When I shouted loudly in the market, they all ran away immediately except Tashi who was caught by the public. I carried my brother to the 3D Hospital through an auto-rickshaw. Someone called the police while seeing me shouting in the street. Kindly take necessary legal action against these persons as all of them have deliberately hurt my brother with the intention of killing him.” 4. That after obtaining the statement of Ballan as a star witness of the case, A.S.I. Harpal Singh and his team took him to the crime spot where they found lot of blood strewed over the road and Tashi, who was caught by the public, was arrested by A.S.I. Harpal Singh and his team. Tashi was also injured during the whole fighting scene. Some of the constables took Tashi to the 3D Hospital for medical treatment. The doctor in his medical report wrote three superficial injuries inflicted on his back. After the investigation, A.S.I. Harpal Singh and his team came back to Police Station, Sonia Vihar, and gave the report to the S.H.O, P.S. Sonia Vihar. Thereafter the F.I.R was recorded on the basis of the statement provided by Ballan and observation of the entire crime spot at around 3:15 am and charged all the accused persons under Section 307/34 of the IPC. 5. That on dated 24th January 2016, at around 8:15 am, A.S.I Harpal Singh got the information (marked as DD No.3) PS Sonia Vihar from constable Dinesh (ballet No.1516/E) over the telephone at 3D Hospital that the victim named Lallan Prasad S/o Sh. Chander Prasad, R/o: H-1111, Gali No.14, Second Pusta, Sonia Vihar, Delhi-94, who was admitted in a very critical condition bearing MLC No. E-33432 died in the I.C.U Ward at 6:45am. He also requested the I.O to come and change the Sections i.e., 307/34 to 302/34 of the IPC. The S.H.O as I.O of the case immediately registered the murder case under Sections 302 read with section 34 of the Indian Penal Code. 6. That on 30th January 2016, at around 8:15pm, the police team also arrested the rest of the coaccuseds with the cooperation of state police officers of Ambala but failed to find the murder weapon. They interrogated Jeysha and found that while running away from the crime scene, Jeysha deliberately took the knife and threw it into the river Ghaggar near Ambala. The I.O then added one more Section 201 of the IPC to the existing criminal case. All the accused persons were charged under Sections 302/201/34 of the IPC. 7. That prosecution examined the material witnesses in the court as under:-
PW-1 Ballan deposed the same version of statement as he delivered earlier in the 3D Hospital to the police officers. PW-2 Mallan deposed that “I was at my friend’s house which was near the 3D Hospital. As soon as I got the information, I immediately rushed to the 3D Hospital and saw my brother, Lallan, who was in the hands of my brother, Ballan. When Ballan saw me, he asked me to take care of Lallan and then he went to the nearby PCO and started calling our parents and other relatives for further assistance.” PW-3 Doctor Kamini, a chief medical officer, deposed that the victim is examined and the injuries are sufficient to cause death of the victim. She presented the victim’s Schematic Injury Diagram Sheet along with the Medico Legal Report-02 (i.e., Post Mortem Report). PW-4 Investigation Officer deposed that “we met the victim, Lallan, in a very critical condition. The doctor restricted us from taking any statement from the victim because of his serious condition. We had arrested all the accused persons. One of the accused Tashi was caught by the public and arrested immediately. Other co-accused persons were arrested after few days i.e., on 30th January, 2016 at around 8:15pm. We failed to collect any witness from the public regarding the incident i.e., the crime scene”. 8. That all the statements of the accused persons under Section 313 Cr.P.C were taken wherein they stated that they were being falsely implicated due to the previous enmity with the complainant and his family members and they knew nothing about this event. 9. That Sessions Court convicted all the accused persons under Sec. 302 r/w Sec. 201 and 34 IPC, and sentenced each of them to life imprisonment. They were also asked to pay compensation of Rs. 2,00,000/- (Rupees two lakhs only) to the parents of Lallan immediately. Each of them was awarded rigorous imprisonment for 2 years under Section 201 IPC. Both the sentences were to run concurrently. 10. That the accused persons, aggrieved by the aforesaid judgement, appealed before the Honourable High Court seeking acquittal. Whereas, State filed an appeal for demanding the death sentence for the accused persons for such a heinous crime and for the enhancement of the amount of compensation taking into account the expenditure incurred in upbringing the 15
dead victim Lallan Prasad by his old parents. The High court adjudicated in the favour of the accuseds by acquitting them from all the charges under Sec.302 r/w Sec. 201 and 34 IPC, and dismissed the appeal of the State, the reason being bereft of any substance and rejected the testimony of Ballan considering it fabricated and concocted statement of an interested party. 11. Aggrieved by the said judgment of the Honourable High Court acquitting all the accused persons, the State filed an appeal before the Honourable Supreme Court of India on the ground that Honourable High Court has failed to take notice of the entire facts of the case as all the accused persons had a motive to harm the Prasad Family. The State also appealed for considering the offence as heinous crime and to award death sentence to all the accused persons under Sec 302 r/w Sec. 201 and 34 IPC and also to enhance the compensation awarded by the Sessions Court to Rs. 10,00,000/-(Rupees Ten lakhs only) under Sec 357A Cr.P.C. The copy of the Medico Legal Report No.1 and 2 along with Schematic Injury Diagram Sheet of Mr. Lallan Prasad is attached herewith. The case is listed for arguments before the Division Bench of the Supreme Court on 25th September, 2016.
