Court lets off driver accused of crushing boy to death

A tempo driver, sentenced to 15 days imprisonment for crushing a seven-year-old boy to death, has been let off by a sessions court which said there was a ‘serious doubt’ about the truthfulness of prosecution's case.

District Judge and additional sessions Judge R K Gauba said the victim's father had ‘created fiction’ and made ‘improvements’ in his testimony made before the court. The court also criticised the investigating officer (IO) for ‘mis-utilising’ the provisions of the criminal procedure code (CrPC) to ‘cover up’ his lapse in not conducting a test identification parade (TIP) right after the accused, Ramesh Singh, was arrested.
