(2.) The facts of the case have been fully set out in the judgments of the lower courts and the record shows that there was valid, acceptable, "and adequate evidence for the conviction that followed and the sentence is also found to be appropriate. Therefore, there are no grounds to interfere in regard to the merits as well as the extent of the sentence.
(3.) The substantial point of law taken before me is the contention based upon the decision of the Punjab High Court in -- 'The State v. Gurcharan Singh', , wherein it was held that Section 5(1)(c) of Act II of 1947 repealed 'pro tanto' Section 409 I. P. C. But with greatest respect for the decision, I find no reasons whatsoever for holding that Section 5 (1) (c) of the Prevention of Corruption Act repeals Section 409 I. P. C.;
