1. The petitioners are the victims of the incident in question. It is his say that petitioner Nos. 2 and 3 have sustained as many as seven fractures over their bodies. The photographs of the injured along with medical case papers have been placed on record. Learned Advocate for the petitioners, Mr. Rao, has urged that despite such serious injuries, Sections 323 and 324 only are added, so far.

Therefore, the investigation may not go on right track.
