Baktar has committed murder. I saw him and Urne§ do it. Baktar said to me at
midday, * Jehed, go to Urne^'s house this evening/ Accordingly, I went that night,
after eating, to Ume^s house. UmeS told me to eat and stay tbete for the night. At
midnight, Ume£ went out in the direction of the canal, and after he came back told me
that it Was time to go* I asked where we had to go, and he said, * we have to uproot a
few paddy plants of mine/ I told him that I should not he able to do any stealing, and
he told me to come, and that he and some one else would do the uprooting. I said, cwho
else ?' and he said, * Baktar Sbekh,1 Then I said,c come along; let us be going.' So they

went off to afield of paddy plants..........After a time I heard Narim Sardar crying out,

c Jasira! Hasim 1 Baktar Shekh has murdered me.* I ran up in the direction of the voice
and saw Baktar strike him on the forearm. He also held Narim's arm to one side with
his left hand, while, with his right hand, he gashed him on the neck with a bill-Book. I
ran up to catch hold of Baktar, but could not do so, and remained standing by the head
of the murdered man.

as that of Backergurtge, vide p. 264
