The revisionist, by means of this revision, seeks to set aside the impugned order dated 30.08.2006, whereby it was directed that the charges under Sections 324 and 504 of IPC be framed against the accused-respondent no. 2. Learned Sessions Judge, vide order dated 30.08.2006, directed that no offence punishable under Section 307 of IPC was, prima facie, made out against the accused. Learned Sessions Judge accordingly, framed the charges against respondent no. 2, in respect of offences punishable under Sections 324 and 504 of IPC on the selfsame date and transferred the file to the Chief Judicial Magistrate for disposal according to law, in as much as, the offences under Sections 324 of 504 of IPC were triable by Magistrate.

An FIR was lodged by the revisionist against respondent no. 2 on 13.11.2004, in police station Kichha, Rudrapur, District Udham Singh Nagar, in respect of offences punishable under Sections 307, 504 and 449 of IPC. It was alleged in the FIR that on 13.11.2004, at 05:30 P.M., accused Ram Pravesh abused Smt. Ram Pyari, Gram Pradhan.

Both the sides were heard on charge. The Sessions Judge after considering the FIR, Chargesheet and the medical report of the injured thought it proper to frame the charges under Sections 324 and 504 of IPC.
