The Karnataka High Court modified the conviction and punishment for a man who squeezed another person’s testicles during a quarrel. The court found that it was a case of causing “grievous hurt” and not an “attempt to murder.” The appellant was convicted under Section 325 of the Indian Penal Code and received a 3-year prison term and a fine of ₹50,000. The court upheld convictions for other offenses and ordered the appellant to pay ₹50,000 as compensation to the victim. The incident occurred during a festival procession, and the court considered factors such as the absence of deadly weapons and previous enmity between the parties.
