Surguja (CG) for the commission of the offence punishable under Section 302 of the I.P.C. On 22-10-2004, some dispute took place between the deceased Rambir and applicant in connection with audio cassette. Deceased Rambir demanded his cassette, therefore, the applicant uttered filthy words, took a piece of brick and pelted over Rambir, which struck to his hand. Deceased again asked for his cassette. Being annoyed thereof, the applicant again took a piece of brick and pelted over him and that brick stuck the head of the deceased causing injury thereon. Deceased-Rambir reported the matter to Police on next day i.e., 23/10/2004, and the Police, taking into consideration all the facts, registered a case against the applicant under Sections 336, 294, 506 and 323 of the I.P.C.
