“ Your Honour, my client, 21 year old Asha and the victim, Sharad, were in a relationship. She’s also three months pregnant with his child. At the time of the incident, the two were in a boat in the middle of Marina river. An argument erupted over the issue. She pressed him for marriage. He wanted out. She accused him of cheating. He called her a whore. This led to a skirmish. In the melee, the boat turned and Sharad, who wasn’t a swimmer, drowned.”
