The fact leading to the case is that, on 01.05.2006, the marriage between the accused-appellant and his wife was solemnized and there were some differences between the accused-appellant and his wife in respect of the furniture given in their marriage as the same was not found as per the standard of the accused-appellant. The accused-appellant demanded money from his wife/victim. On 14.09.2006, they visited the matrimonial house of the victim in the maruti car of the accused-appellant. They also attended janmastami observed in a nearby namghar. In the evening, the accused-appellant with his wife/victim took his vehicle on a bye-pass road pretending to have their dinner at a dhaba. At a lonely place, the accused-appellant stopped the car, pulled out an iron rod from the rear seat of his car and inflicted blows on the victim/wife and thereafter drove the vehicle and dashed against a truck which was stationed by the side of the road. It was alleged that he did so with an intention of killing his wife/victim.;
