Indian Penal Code, Section 141 - Unlawful assembly and common object of the unlawful assembly  - Court generally could determine those aspects based on the evidence on record - In the matter on hand, 36 eye­witnesses are available -  According to the case of the prosecution, all the accused came in a group to the house of PW2, and PW9, and torched these houses knowing fully well that the IPF party men had assembled in those houses -  Prima facie, the Court can visualize  the common object of unlawful assembly from this evidence - The Court cannot expect the prosecution to prove its case by leading separate evidence with respect to unlawful assembly  and  common object - If those factors can be found out based on the available material on record, there is no reason as to why the Courts should ignore the same. (2018)2 SCeJ 1390
