the appellant and the counsel for the State respectively. We find from a
perusal of the record that the case of the prosecution has been proved by the
evidence of PW's.1, 2 and 3, the wife, the mother and the son of the deceased.
The incident had happened at about 10.30 p.m. and their presence at the residence
thus cannot be disbelieved. We also see from the medical evidence that the
incised wounds and other injuries on the dead body reinforce the credibility of
the prosecution story. We also see that the FIR had been lodged -2- within an

reached the village and recorded the FIR at the instance of PW.1 at the spot.
therefore, not inclined to interfere in this matter. The Criminal Appeal is,
