    The victim, then aged 14 and a resident of Kalwa town here, got acquainted with Saini during a visit to her native village in Rajasthan's Dausa district in February 2016. The duo fell in love, following which Saini came to Kalwa on the pretext of appearing for an exam and stayed at the girl's house.

    On March 18, 2016, he insisted that the girl accompany him to his native village. When she refused, he fired a country-made revolver at her, seriously injuring her. The girl's sister raised an alarm and their neighbours rushed the victim to a hospital. The accused was subsequently arrested and booked under various IPC sections, including 307 (attempt to murder), and relevant provisions of the Arms Act.

    The judge in his order said the prosecution established that the accused attempted to commit murder by opening fire at the girl, and caused her life threatening injuries. She survived due to prompt hospitalisation, he noted. Also, the accused possessed the gun without a licence, which shows his criminal tendency, the judge observed while pronouncing the sentence.
