avoiding his calls as she was being criticized by her friends and her colleague Kavita for her choice.

With the help of Jeyant, her distant relative she got a new a new phone number to avoid Deven but

she continued to use her old number as she didn’t want her parents to know anything. She also

blocked him but he tried to reach her through public booths and by standing outside her office for

several hours. She then decided to meet him and tell him about her plan of becoming an air hostess.

They had a heated argument at their meeting and Pooja slapped him when he accused her for losing

her character he felt humiliated and left quietly. Deven met Karan on his way back and they two

got heavily drunk. After which they left for Deven’s hostel.

He was furious after he called Pooja at 11:45 P.M., then he messaged Pooja to meet him for the

last time at any public place as he wanted to apologize. Pooja then invited him to meet at Indra

Nagar Metro Station on 12th and was accompanied by Kavita and was wearing short mini skirt and

a halter neck top which enraged him. Jeyant was also hiding nearby to watch the developments.

Jeyant and Kavita suddenly panicked after realizing that Deven was holding a pen knife very close

to Pooja’s face. Then Jeyant threw a stone at Deven to save Pooja and called for help. Deven to

protect himself held knife against Pooja’s neck in resistance to which she got injured and fell

unconscious. Jeyant further in anguish attacked him with the mob and he too fell unconscious. The

ARGUMENTS ADVANCED

1. THAT UNDER THE FACTS AND EVIDENCES PRESENTED THE ACCUSED NO. 1 IS GUILTY

UNDER § 307 OF BPC.

It is humbly submitted before the Hon’ble Court that Deven1 is guilty under § 307 of BPC. This

Section deals with any act done with the intention to commit murder and in pursuance of that

intention does any act towards the commission of murder, whether the act done is penultimate act

or not.2 If a man commits an act with such intention and knowledge and under such circumstances

that if death has been caused the offence would have amounted to murder and the act itself is of

such a nature as would have caused death in the usual course of events but for something beyond

his control which prevented that result his would be punishable as an attempt to murder.3

In the case of Gobind Singh v. State4, the court held that in order to hold a person guilty under this

Sec. the following two ingredients must be present [A] an intention or knowledge of committing

murder [B] the doing of an act towards it.

A. AN INTENTION OR KNOWLEDGE OF COMMITTING MURDER.

It is a principle of natural justice and our law, that actus non facitreum nisi mens sit rea5. The intent

and the act must both concur to constitute the crime6. The basic meaning of mens rea is guilty

intention7 which is generally proved or inferred from the acts of the accused.8

SURANA AND SURANA NATIONAL TRIAL ADVOCACY MOOT COURT COMPETITION 2018
Intent which is a state of mind can never be precisely proved by direct evidences as a fact; it can

only deduced or inferred from other facts.9 An illuminating discussion on the issue ‘mens rea’ is

to be found in the Supreme Court’s decision in the case of Kaluram v. State of Assam10 and the

court established these essentials which are needed to be fulfilled to prove mens rea: (1) The nature

of the weapon; (2) the nature of the injuries caused; (3) the place where the injuries were inflected;

(4) opportunity available which the accused gets. The nature of injury actually caused may

sometimes afford a clue to find it requisite intention to kill was present or not.

This is further reaffirmed by another case Hari Kishan v. Sukhbir Singh and Ors11in which

Supreme Court held that under Section 307 BPC the intention or knowledge of the accused must

be such as is necessary constitute murder. Without this ingredient being established, there can be

no offence of attempt to murder. Under § 307 the intention precedes the act attributed to accused.

Therefore, the intention is to be gathered from all circumstances, and not merely from the

consequences that ensue.

In the instant case the nature of weapon used by accused no. 1 was a penknife which he used to

slash Pooja’s throat and hence inflicted an injury to her. However, it is pertinent to mention that

the penknife was not picked up from the spot and was already in his possession, this shows that he

already had the intention to kill Pooja. The place of injury was Pooja’s throat which is a vital part

of human body and any injury on the same is capable of killing a person as proved by the injury

certificate that the cut was of 5.7 cm x 3 cm, (both margins not cleanly cut; Right end acute)12

which proves that the nature of injuries inflicted were serious and grave in nature. It is evident that

accused No. 1 had the intention to kill Pooja, owing to the humiliation faced by him when he was

slapped by Pooja and was not able to overcome the fact that Pooja was no more interested in him,

he wasn’t able to control his rage and hence used the opportunity available to him at the metro

station to kill Pooja.

From all the facts and evidences, it is evident that Accused no. 1 had all the requisite intention and

knowledge of his acts and his acts were done with an intent to kill Pooja.

B. THE DOING OF AN ACT TOWARDS IT.

Actus reus is any wrongful act.13 There must be an act done, irrespective of its result and the act

must be capable of causing death in the natural and ordinary course of things. The Supreme Court

has held that a person commits an offence under this section when he has an intention to commit

murder and in pursuance of that act is the penultimate act or not.14

Attempt is an intentional preparatory action which fails in its object-which so fails through

circumstances independent of the person who seeks its accomplishment.15 The expression “by that

act” in section 307 does not mean that the immediate effect of the act committed must be death all

that is required is that the result of that act must be death whether immediately or after a lapse of

time.

In the instant case accused No. 1 had used the Pen knife to cut Pooja’s throat, which is reaffirmed

by Kavita, Kannan and Jeyant’s statement as all of them are eye witnesses of the act of Deven

slashing Pooja’s throat, slashing of throat is an act which was capable of causing Pooja’s death in

natural and ordinary circumstances. Further from the CCTV footage it can be proved that he has

slashed Pooja’s throat.

Since both the ingredients of the section are fulfilled, the accused should be held guilty under this

section.

2. THAT UNDER GIVEN FACTS STATED AND EVIDENCES PRESENTED ACCUSED NO. 1 IS GUILTY

UNDER § 354-D & § 509 OF BPC.

It is humbly submitted before the Hon’ble court that the Accused 1 is guilty under § 354-D & §

509 of BPC. [A] The acts of Deven to contacted Pooja to foster personal interaction with her

repeatedly despite indication of clear disinterest by her will come under § 354D of BPC whereas

[B] His intention to insult the modesty of Pooja will be dealt under § 509 of BPC.

A. THAT THE ACCUSED IS GUILTY UNDER § 354D OF BPC.

It is humbly contented to the Hon’ble court that Deven is guilty under § 354d of BPC which states

that “any man who follows a woman and contacts, or attempts to contact such woman to foster

personal interaction repeatedly despite a clear indication of disinterest by such woman commits

the offence of stalking”.16 In the present case Accused no. 1 has committed the offence twice, first

time before he met Pooja at restaurant and second is the period between their meetings at

restaurant and metro station. The expression “man” mentioned under this section denotes a male

human being of any age.17On the interpretation of the section, following ingredients need to be

proved to hold a man guilty under this section;18(A.1) follows a woman and contacts or attempts

to contact such woman, (A.2) to foster personal interaction repeatedly, (A.3)despite a clear

indication of disinterest by such woman.

(A.1) Follows a woman and contacts or attempts to contact such woman.

The word woman has been described under §10 of BPC as female human being of any age.19In the

instant case, Accused No. 1 has followed and attempted to contact Pooja in both phases. The

argument is backed by statement made by Kavita and Jeyant. As per the statement given by Kavita,

he used to stand outside the office when it gets over and wait for Pooja to come out which proves

completion of first essential in first phase. This can be further reconfirmed from the Jeyant’s

statement. As far as second phase is concerned he has frequently called and texted her during office

hours and used to disturb her and after her met at restaurant as same is backed by Exhibit no 920(call

records). All these incidents prove beyond reasonable doubt that Deven has followed and

attempted to contact Pooja.

(A.2) To foster personal interaction repeatedly.

In the instant case, accused No. 1 has repeatedly asked Pooja to meet him through messages and

calls, as supported by the WhatsApp chats and calls records which are humbly submitted by the

prosecution clearly proves that he has recurrently foster her to meet which is the reason she met

him in restaurant and later at the Metro Station. Hence, it fulfills the second essential.

(A.3) Despite a clear indication of disinterest by such woman.

In the case of Arvind Kumar Gupta v. State21 the Hon’ble court stated that ignoring the calls of the

accused is the clear indication of disinterest by a woman. In the instant case, Pooja has not only

avoided his calls but also blocked him. She even used alternative number so that she can avoid

Deven, the same is proved by Jeyant and Kavita. As a victim is the best witness of the incident,

therefore on 9 June, 2017, when Pooja met Deven in the restaurant she again expressly asked

Deven that he need not to contact with her anymore which proves beyond any doubt that she has

clearly indicated her disinterest.

The section further provides certain conduct which if a man pursued shall not amount to stalking.22

In the instance case, the prosecution humbly contended that Deven has not been entrusted with the

responsibility of prevention and detection of crime either by state or law. Further his acts were not

reasonable and justified as calling and texting her during her office hours and at night in spite clear

indication of disinterest cannot be justified. Hence it is contented by the prosecution that Deven

should be held guilty under § 354-d of BPC as he has committed the offence twice.

B. THAT THE ACCUSED NO. 1 IS GUILTY UNDER § 509 OF BPC.

Sec 509 penalizes a man who with word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a

woman.23 To penalize a man under this sec following ingredients need to be satisfy by a man, (B.1)

Intention to insult the modesty of a woman, (B.2) The insult must be caused either by uttering

some words, or making some sound, or gesture or exhibiting any object so as to be heard or seen

by such woman, or by intruding upon the privacy of such woman.24

B.1 Intention to insult the modesty of a woman.

Since the term woman modesty has nowhere been described under BPC, hence According to

Oxford English Dictionary modesty is the quality of being modest and in relation to woman means

“womanly propriety of behavior; scrupulous chastity of thought, speech and conduct”.25An

22
(i) it was pursued for the purpose of preventing or detecting crime and the man accused of stalking bad been
entrusted with the responsibility of prevention and detection of crime by the State; or
(ii) it was pursued under any law or to comply with any condition or requirement imposed by any person under any
law; or
(iii.) in the particular circumstances such conduct was reasonable and justified.
23
§ 509, INDIAN PEN. CODE, 1860, No. 45 of 1860: Whoever, intending to insult the modesty of any woman, utters
any word, makes any sound or gesture, or exhibits any object, intending that such word or sound shall be heard, or
that such gesture or object shall be seen, by such woman, or intrudes upon the privacy of such woman, shall be
punished with simple imprisonment for a term which may extend to three years, and also with fine.

illuminating discussion on the issue of “modesty of woman” is to be found in Supreme Court’s

decision in State of Punjab vs. Major Singh26 as “modesty is the attribute of her sex” and the

ultimate test for ascertaining whether modesty has been outraged is, is the action of the offender

such as could be perceived as one which is capable of shocking the sense of decency of a woman.

In the instant case, Accused No. 1 at the restaurant, infuriated Pooja and abused her and by saying

that her dress and behavior shows she is losing her character as being proved by Pooja and Kavita.

In the case State of kerala v. Hamsa27the Hon’ble Court stated that even if those gesticulations

were done without being noticed by others except the woman those acts would amount to insult to

her modesty. Hence the statement made by him, though not been heard or seen by others would

amount to insulting the modesty of Pooja.

B.2 The insult must be caused either by uttering some words, or making some sound, or gesture

or exhibiting any object.

The second ingredient is related to the way insult should be made. It may be words or sound or

object. In the case at hand, Deven has out rightly abused Pooja and further said that ‘she is losing

her character as the same is proved by Kavita. His words were abusive enough to insult the modesty

of a woman.

Hence it is contented by the prosecution that accused should be held guilty under § 509 since he

has satisfied all the necessary ingredients.

3.THAT UNDER GIVEN FACTS AND CIRCUMSTANCES THE ACCUSED NO. 2 IS GUILTY UNDER §

325 OF BPC.

It is most humbly submitted before the Hon’ble Court that the accused should be held guilty under

§ 325 of the BPC which provides punishment for voluntary causing grievous hurt.28 From the

interpretation of the section, it can be inferred that there are two essentials which are required to

be proved to hold someone guilty under this section which are; [A] The act should include grievous

hurt caused voluntarily as mentioned under § 322.29 [B] Act should not come under the ambit of

§.335 of BPC.30

A. THE ACT SHOULD INCLUDE GRIEVOUS HURT CAUSED VOLUNTARILY AS MENTIONED UNDER

§.322.

The expression ‘voluntarily causing grievous hurt’ has been explained under § 322.31 As per § 322

any person who causes both the grievous hurt and intends or knows himself to be likely to cause

grievous hurt, is said to have commit the crime of voluntarily causing grievous hurt and what

includes in ‘grievous hurt’ is explained under § 320 in eight methods.32 After the interpretation of

these eight modes, it can be stated that the injury which is actually found should itself be such that

it may put the life of the injured endanger or of such nature which is capable to damage either

permanently or temporally any vital part of human body will constitute grievous hurt. To hold

voluntarily causes grievous hurt, shall be punished with imprisonment of either description for a term which may
extend to seven years, and shall also be guilty to fine.

§ 322, INDIAN PEN. CODE, 1860, No. 45 of 1860, Voluntarily causing grievous hurt.-Whoever voluntarily causes
hurt, if the hurt which he intends to cause or knows himself to be likely to cause is grievous hurt, and if the hurt which
he causes is grievous hurt, is said “voluntarily to cause grievous hurt.” Explanation.-A person is not said voluntarily
to cause grievous hurt except when he both causes grievous hurt and intends or knows himself to be likely to cause
grievous hurt. But he is said voluntarily to cause grievous hurt, if intending or knowing himself to be likely to cause
grievous hurt of one kind, he actually causes grievous hurt of another kind.

§ 320, INDIAN PEN. CODE, 1860, No. 45 of 1860, Eighthly -Any hurt which endangers life or which causes the
sufferer to be during the space of twenty days in severe bodily pain, or unable to follow his ordinary pursuits.

SURANA AND SURANA NATIONAL TRIAL ADVOCACY MOOT COURT COMPETITION 2018
someone guilty under this section, that person should not only commit grievous hurt but also has

intention or knowledge to commit such hurt.

In the instant case at the metro station Accused No. 2 threw the stone at Deven’s head with the

knowledge that his act would viciously injure Deven. Further the intention can be inferred as he

hit the stone at such vital part and with such a force that resulted in bleeding of his head.

Voluntarily Causing grievous hurt can further be proved as Jeyant kicked Deven in his abdomen

even when Deven was lying helplessly while having the knowledge that his kick is of such a nature

and on such a vital part of the body which is capable of endangering Deven’s life. Hence the first

essential has been fulfilled.

B. ACT SHOULD NOT COME UNDER THE AMBIT OF § 335 OF BPC.

§ 335 prescribed punishment for voluntarily causing grievous hurt on grave and sudden

provocation. The essence of the section is that such grievous hurt has been caused on grave and

sudden provocation and nothing else.33

However, in the instant case, Accused No. 2 was from very beginning jealous of Deven, as he was

interested in Pooja and she never displayed the similar interest in him. Further she did not take his

warnings seriously to keep distance from Deven as he didn’t like her relationship with him and he

always kept a watch on her movements. However, it is pertinent to mention that Deven belonged

to backward community while Jeyant belonged to the upper community and due to the political

and caste based parties, violent clashes were quite common in the State of Barat between both

these communities. All these circumstances establish a chain of events through which it can

inferred that Jeyant from very beginning had disliked Deven and always awaited to take revenge

from him, hence it can be stated that he always had the requisite mens rea to commit the crime and

on the day of the incident it got accompanied with actus reus, thus constituted a crime.

Hence it is humbly contended before the Hon’ble court that Accused No. 2 should be held guilty

under § 325 of BPC.

4.THAT UNDER GIVEN FACTS AND CIRCUMSTANCES THE ACCUSED NO. 2 IS GUILTY UNDER §

355 OF BPC.

It is most humbly submitted before this Hon’ble Court that the accused should be held guilty under

sec. 355.34 To hold someone guilty under this section, following essentials need to be proved; [A]

The accused assaulted, or used criminal force upon a person; [B] he did so intending thereby to

dishonor the said person; and [C] he did so otherwise than on grave and sudden provocation given

by the said person.35

A. THE ACCUSED ASSAULTED, OR USED CRIMINAL FORCE UPON A PERSON.

An assault is a gesture or preparation, made by a person, who intends, or knows that it is likely,

that some person present will thereby apprehend that he is about to use criminal force.36 Or in other

words it is an act which intentionally or possibly recklessly causes another person to apprehend

immediate and unlawful personal violence.37 Criminal Force has been defined in the § 350 of BPC

as intentional use of force without the other person’s consent and with the object of either

committing an offence or of causing injury, fear or annoyance to the person, to whom the force is

34
Whoever assaults or uses criminal force to any person, intending thereby to dishonour that person, otherwise than
on grave and sudden provocation given by that person, shall be punished with imprisonment of either description for
a term which may extend to two years, or with fine, or with both.

used.38 An illuminating meaning of criminal force is to be found in S.P. Malik v. State of Orissa39

as use of force will become criminal when it is done against the consent of any person with the

intention of committing an offence or to cause injury, fear, annoyance to any person.

After interpretation of the following definitions it can be contended that Accused No. 2 had used

the criminal force against Deven may it be when he threw the stones or viciously kicked his

abdomen. The force was used against Deven without his consent with the intention of causing

injury, thus hereby fulfilling the first essential.

B. HE DID SO INTENDING THEREBY TO DISHONOR THE SAID PERSON.

The term intention has nowhere described under the BPC, however on the basis of analysis on the

Supreme Court interpretation on intention, it can be contended that its implies a pre-arranged plan

and acting in concert pursuant. The intention to dishonor the person assaulted, or to whom the

criminal force is used, is an essential ingredient of an offence under this section.40

In the instant case, Accused No. 2 was from very beginning jealous of Deven, as he was interested

in Pooja and she never displayed the similar interest in him. Further she did not take his warnings

seriously to keep distance from Deven as he didn’t like her relationship with him. Deven belonged

to backward community and violent clashes were quite common in the State of Bharat. Thus it can

be inferred from all the circumstances that the whole act of Accused No. 2 of using criminal force

was done with the intention to dishonor Deven. The use of such force at metro station which is

usually crowded clearly depicts that there was a clear intention of dishonoring him. Further the

intention to dishonor can be deduced from his act of shouting ‘Murder Murder…,’. He even

without that person’s consent, in order to the committing of any offence, or intending by the use of such force to
cause, or knowing it to be likely that by the use of such force he will cause injury, fear or annoyance to the person to
whom the force is used, is said to use criminal force to that other.

misguided the public in order to dishonor him, these contentions are backed by way of witness

statement and the CCTV footage of the Metro station. Thus, second essential has been fulfilled.

C. HE DID SO OTHERWISE THAN ON GRAVE AND SUDDEN PROVOCATION GIVEN BY THE SAID

PERSON.

The expression “grave” indicate that provocation be of such nature so as to give cause for the alarm

to the aggressor. “Sudden” means an action which must be quick and unexpected so far as to

provoke the aggressor.41

However, in the case at hand, as already been proved by the prosecution that Accused No. 2 always

has the requisite mens rea i.e the intention to take revenge from Devan. Hence his actions weren’t

due to sudden provocations but a pre-plann5ed act.

Hence it is humbly contented by the Prosecution that Accused No. 2 should be held guilty under

the § 325 of BPC, since all the necessary ingredients have been proved by the prosecution.

5. THAT UNDER THE GIVEN FACTS STATED AND EVIDENCES PRESENTED THE ABSCONDED

ACCUSED ARE GUILTY UNDER § 358 OF THE BPC.

It is humbly contended that all the accused are guilty under § 358 of the BPC. § 358 prescribes for

punishment of assault or use of criminal force on grave and sudden provocation by that person.42

In the instant case the 4 unknown persons are guilty under this § and this will subsequently be

proved by the way of [A] Witness Statement and [B] CCTV footage (Metro).

[A] Witness Statement

In this instant case through the evidences and statement of witnesses recorded clearly shows that

acts have been done by the accused. All the witnesses are competent as per Sec. 118 of the Barat

Evidence Act,1872. Kannan’s statement makes it clear that it was after someone shouted Murder

thrice and the subsequent slashing of Pooja’s neck resulted in sudden provocation, this is further

reaffirmed from Kavita’s statement that she heard the same words, the occurrence of both these

acts one after the other led to sudden and grave provocation among the public.

[B] CCTV (Metro Station)

It is humbly submitted before the Hon’ble court that in this instant case the Metro CCTV footage43

clearly proves that it was after the stone had hit Deven and on the subsequent slashing of Pooja’s

throat, the crowd went towards Deven and thrashed him.

Therefore, from the aforementioned arguments it can be concluded that the public acted under

sudden and grave provocation and hence four of them should be held guilty under § 358.

Statements of Witness
(Under §. 164 of CrPC)
1. Pooja

He started calling me frequently in spite of my clear instruction of not to call me. I was really
annoyed with his acts and used to tell Pooja about everything that was happening. In order to bring
stop to all his acts I met him in restaurant. But he abused me and I slapped him for that. He
continued his acts so in order to end all this for last I met him at metro station. Suddenly he brought
the knife near my throat and then a stone hit him and he was sin rage and he grasped me and
slashed my shoulder.

2. Deven

We are in a relationship from past four years. Fortunately, we both got job in the same city. She
had better job in the same city. She had better job than me. After one year in Punnai our relationship
was going through many ups and downs. One day she used to be good to me and other day she
behaved indifferent. It was being difficult to understand her behaviour. We used to meet less
frequently. Once we met at restaurant she slapped me and humiliated me. After this I called her
and requested her to meet and solve things and then she fixed our meeting at metro station. We
were sitting on a bench on metro station when a stone hit me and in that very next moment
approached me and started to beat me. The next morning, I woke up in the hospital.

(Under §. 161 of CrPC)


1. Jeyant (Accused 2)

I am a distant relative of Pooja. I work in Punnai where my office is nearby to Pooja’s. many a
times I have seen Deven standing outside office. After few days Pooja asked to me provide her
with new number being irritated with Deven’s call and whatsapp messages. Also, when meeting
was fixed at metro station with Deven she asked me to accompany her. Where I was hiding and
observing them. The next I saw was knife which was close Pooja’s neck. I immediately threw
stone at Deven and approached them quickly. Then Deven had knife against Pooja’s neck and I
threw another stone at Deven then he injured Pooja and she was taken to hospital.

2. Kavita

I worked with Pooja in same office in Punnai and overtime we became close friends. She told me
about Deven and even I saw how he was harassing her by frequently calling her during office time
and often waited outside our office. I told Pooja to meet him to avoid troubles in future and end
things once and for all but she told me that he abused her. In that meeting but he continued his acts
as he used to do before. Then she decided to meet him at metro station. She asked me and Jayent
to accompany her, I met Deven and then he asked me to leave as he wanted to talk to her personally
then I sat on nearby bench about 10 feet away. I saw Deven took the apple out and he started
cutting them and after few minutes the knife was very close to Pooja’s case. I got shocked the next
thing that happened was Deven was hit by something then suddenly he pulled her and placed the
knife on her neck. The knife slashed her shoulder.

3. Karan

I met Deven near my house. He was looking devastated. I was going for the dinner so I asked him
to tag along. I asked him the reason behind his state and he told me that Pooja wants to break up
with him and he went to meet her and after a verbal altercation, she slapped him in public. He also
told me about how Pooja’s sudden change of behavior is hurting him a lot and how she has started
treating him like a stranger. He was depressed and I offered him a couple of drinks and then
dropped him at his flat

4. Kannan

I reached metro station when the metro scheduled at about 9:35 a.m. just departed. In order to wait
for the next metro which was scheduled at about 10:00 a.m., I went and sat on the extreme end of
the metro station. A boy was already sitting there and after 10 minutes two girls arrived. One girl
sat next to the boy. After sometime while cutting an apple the boy he held the knife very close to
the girl’s face and in the very next moment a stone hit the boy’s head. He then caught hold of girl
and held knife against her neck. The boy fell unconscious with another attack and police came and
took cognizance of the situation.

I am Deven’s roommate. Since he has moved with me I have mostly seen him worried and mainly
because of Pooja. He is constantly worried about her safety and wellbeing. One day he comes
home drunk and told me about whatever happened at the restaurant. He then called her to meet for
the last time and told me that this time he will end everything on a good note. Like always he took
fruits and a small knife in his cotton bag and told me that this is how it all started and how he will
offer her an apple for the one last time. It is unfortunate whatever happened to him. He deserved
better.

brutally and some by-standers also attacked Deven.
F.I.R. was registered on the same day and IO started investigation, as four items were
seized which are a pen knife, stone with blood stains, apples and a cotton bag. The forensic team
was called at the crime scene to collect blood and finger-print samples The forensic reports showed

figure prints on the knife were found to be of Deven’s. The Stone contained Blood of Deven and
figure prints matched with Jeyant. On further interrogating eye witness Kannan and other
witnesses and considering all the reports it was found that Deven had planned to kill Pooja by
using a pen knife to slash her neck. Jeyant because of jealousy and hatred towards Deven thrashed
him badly even when he was lying helplessly and has surrendered. By going through the call
records and CCTV footage collected from Pooja’s office it was found that Deven was continuously
disturbing her in spite of clear warnings of Pooja, which shows that Pooja was not at all interested
in him.

at PG Builders entered Indira Nagar Metro Station and sat at a corner on a bench
after 15 minutes a girl named Pooja working as a software developer at software

due to which he got injured. Then Deven caught hold of Pooja and held knife
