Criminal Appeal no.1860 of 2007 of Lakhan Singh and Sandeep Shukla and Criminal Appeal no. 1836 of 2007 of Habib Alam arise out of a common order dated 8.3.2007 passed by learned Addl. District & Sessions Judge, Kanpur Nagar in S.T. No.1326 of 2000 under Sections 147, 148, 149, 307, 302 IPC pertaining to police station Nawabganj, District Kanpur Nagar whereby the appellants-accused have been convicted under Sections 302/149, 307/149, 148 & 147 IPC and sentenced to life imprisonment and fine, 10 years R.I. and fine, 3 years R.I. and fine and 2 years R.I. and fine respectively. They have made the prayer for their release on bail during the pendency of their appeal.
The prayer for bail of the appellants-accused in both the Appeals is being heard together and is disposed of by a common order.
Objection filed by the State be taken on record.
Heard Sri Prashant Kumar Singh, learned counsel for the appellants-accused Lakhan Singh and Sandeep Shukla, Sri A.K. Sachan, learned counsel for the appellant-accused Habib Alam, Sri D.V. Singh, learned counsel for the informant, learned A.G.A. for the State and perused the objection and the impugned judgment.
It has vehemently been argued by the learned counsel for the appellants-accused that the appellants did not appear to have caused any injury to the deceased, but it is alleged that the co-accused Rajendra Verma has caused firearm injury on the person of Ajai Pratap Singh resulting into his death and the presence of solitary firearm injury on the person of the victim excludes the participation of the appellants in the occurrence. Therefore, the case of the appellants is distinguishable from the case of co-accused Rajendra Verma.
We have taken into account the entire facts and circumstances of the case, but without expressing any opinion on the merit of the case, the appeal is admitted.
Connect this criminal appeal with criminal appeal no.1836 of 2007.
