applicants are acquitted of the charge under sections 306 and 304B read

with section 34 of the Indian Penal Code.

3 The learned Counsel for the applicants submits that the

applicants were on bail during the pendency of the trial and hence, they

are entitled to extension of the same relief during the pendency of the

appeal. The sentence imposed upon the applicants is a short term

sentence.

4 Reliance can be placed upon the Judgment of the Apex

Court in the case of Kiran Kumar v/s. State of M.P. 2001 AIR SCW

5130 for seeking suspension of substantive sentence during the

pendency of the appeal which cannot be heard at the earliest thereby

causing the prayer to become infructuous.

4 In view of this, the applicant deserves to be enlarged on bail.

Hence following order is passed :

ORDER

(i) The application is allowed.

(ii) The substantive sentence imposed upon the applicants vide

Judgment and Order dated 15/3/2019 passed by Additional Sessions
