Aggrieved against the impugned judgment and order, present criminal revision was filed by Beerwati (injured).
(3.) Pw1 Ved Pal was the informant of the case, who set the criminal law into motion against the accusedrespondent no. 2 by filing an FIR. PW1 said, in his FIR, that his sister Beerwati was married to Kashi Ram, who was having illicit relationship with his bhabhi (sister-inlaw) Palli. When his sister opposed his relationship with his sister-in-law, accused assaulted her. Beerwati came to her parental home. She remained there for about a year. Beerwati filed an application under Section 125 of Cr.P.C. for maintenance before Judge, Family Court, Haridwar. One of the relatives of Kashi Ram approached Beerwati and requested her family members to send Beerwati alongwith him. Kashi Ram said that if Beerwati comes back to her matrimonial home, he would accept Beerwati. Beerwati accordingly joined her matrimonial home. On 08.02.2004, at around 10:00 A.M., when Beerwati was in sugarcane field, Kashi Ram inflicted blow of palkati (sharp edged weapon) on Beerwati with the intention to kill her. Beerwati sustained grievous injuries. She was admitted to Government Hospital at Haridwar. She was referred to the higher center at Meerut.
