Batcha @ Guramkonda
Garika Prasad & ANR. Versus State of A.P.
O R D E R
We have heard the learned
counsel for the parties. We are told by the learned counsel for the appellants that
appellant No. 2 Gurramkonda Hari has passed away on 25th November, 2008. The appeal
qua appellant No. 2 is, accordingly, dismissed as having abated. We see that the
prosecution story is based on two dying declarations given by the deceased, one
recorded by a Sub Inspector and the other by a Magistrate and that both the dying
declarations had been recorded after the doctor had certified that the injured
was in a fit condition to make her statement. In the light of this fact, no other
evidence was necessary to maintain the conviction of the appellant. We,
accordingly, dismiss the appeal.
