Court after hearing Adv Vishal Kapur in length and Public Prosecutor BB Sharma observed that the essential ingredients to constitute prima facie offence u/s 304-B RPC have not been establish in the present case on the basis of statements of materials witness referred above, which are general and not specific, to satisfy the ingredients required to charge the accused persons for the offence punishable u/s 304-B RPC.
