injuries separated by a small bridge of skin extending from the inner aspect of
lower 1/3 of left thigh on circling and running up to the posterior aspect of the
knee upto the medial aspect, exposing the severed muscle quadriceps femoris,
lateral group of muscles and the fractured lower and of the left femur with communication

left tibic and severed peploiteat nerves and vessels.
5. deep cut injuries one

medial aspect and served muscles, tendons, nerves and vessels.
6. A cut injury over the
left calf region back of left 5 X 2 X 1 cm." The very gravity of the injuries
