dear author, you have to note one thing., indian law are not fixed one. it is flexible according to cases and circumstances.

so as of you stated, the owner of the farm house shall be charged, but acquittal or conviction its would be according to evidences before the trial.

Thanku so much for ur rwplies sir...actually my main query is as my teacher was teching in the class there us the same case and she told that the owner is liable.But according to me he should not be liable as he took the proper care that this circumstance might nit happen.So now the owner cant be held liable for the child's own mistake.This is what I want to make clear to myself.Please tell me if I m going right or not.

already i told you that our law is flexible.. so we can take it as of we need..

we are advocates., if the deceased boy's father is our client mean we going to fight against the farm house owner.,

on the other hand if the owner is our client mean we going to fight to acquittal the case. thats it..

very simple sir..
