The accused- respondents no.4 to 9 conspired and adopted illegal procedure, manipulated or shaped the police report in such a way, to save the accused from the offence of murder and made it a simple case of accident.

    The petition was disposed of with the direction to superintendent of police, Ajmer, to examine the matter particularly.
