Call for the record.

Heard on IA No.8502/17, an

petition against the judgment dated

Narsinghgarh in Criminal Appeal
No.71/2013 whereby the learned appellate
Court has dismissed the appeal and

dated 28.02.2013 passed in Criminal Case

-2- CRR No.1170/2017

Learned counsel for the petitioner
submitted that the Courts below have

committed an error in appreciating the
evidence and convicting the petitioner.
The petitioner was on bail during trial
as well as appeal and he never misused
the liberty granted by the court. The
hearing of this petition would likely to
take long time, hence prayed for
suspension of sentence and release of
petitioner on bail.

On the other hand, learned counsel
for the respondent/State opposed the
prayer.

Considering the facts and
circumstances of the case and the short
sentence involved in the matter and the
fact that petition is likely to take
time for final hearing, the application
is allowed and the jail sentence alone
passed against the petitioner shall
remain suspended and the petitioner is
directed to be released on bail upon his
furnishing personal bond in the sum of

-3- CRR No.1170/2017

Rs.25,000/- with one solvent surety in
the like amount to the satisfaction of
the trial Court for his appearance
before the Registry of this Court on
23.10.2017 and on such further dates as
may be fixed in this behalf by the
Registry during the pendency of this
petition.

C.c as per rules.

(VIRENDER SINGH)
