(1.)The matter under consideration presently before this Court stands out to be singularly singular on the plea of fabrication by the defence against the prosecutor. The High Court of Delhi negated the same and dismissed the appeal against the conviction under Section 302,IPC and the sentence of imprisonment for life along with fine.
(2.)It is at this juncture convenient to advert briefly to the prosecution case as below :
(3.)Alamgir, the appellant herein being a resident of Pakistan was married to Ms. Hazra (known by the name of Halima after marriage). The factual score depicts that on 17th September, 1991, the appellant came to Delhi along with his wife Hazra alias Halima and they checked-in in a hotel at Darya Ganj (Royal Inn Guest House) on 18th September, 1991 at about 8.50 p.m. Upon registration in the guest registration book, the appellant and his wife, who was in Burqa, were allotted Room No. 107 and the key was handed over to Alamgir. On 19th September, 1991, Alamgir, however, went out and brought some breakfast and at or about 10.15 in the morning, he reported at the counter informing therewith that the wife being left alone in the hotel room ought not to be disturbed and that he would be back soon. Alamgir, however, the factual score depict, did not return till 20th and the Manager of the hotel by reason of not being able to get any response from the room after several attempts, opened the room with the duplicate key in the presence of one Dinesh Chand and found that the deceased was lying on the bed covered with a red dupatta. Immediately thereafter, however, the police was informed and Sub-Inspector Rajbir Singh reached at the hotel and recorded the statement of the Manager of the hotel. The Crime Branch was called along with photographer and upon completion of all necessary formalities, the dead body was sent for post-mortem and the FIR being No. 357/91 was registered around 12.25 in the afternoon.
