(1.) The learned counsel, who was engaged by Kishan Singh, appellant
in Criminal Appeal No. 225 of 2004, is no more. Mrs. Pushpa Joshi is
appearing in the other two connected appeals on behalf of the appellants
herein. She is otherwise competent and ready to argue the case also on
behalf of Kishan Singh. Accordingly, we appoint Mrs. Pushpa Joshi as
Amicus Curiae insofar as Criminal Appeal No. 225 of 2004 is concerned
to argue the case on behalf of Kishan Singh, appellant.
(2.) These appeals are against the common judgment, whereby and
under, all the appellants in these appeals have been convicted under
Section 302, read with Section 120-B and Section 34 of the Indian Penal
Code as well as under Section 201, read with Section 34 of the Indian
Penal Code. Appellant Davendra Singh was also convicted under Section
309 of the Indian Penal Code. Each of them was also charged for offence
punishable under Section 25 of the Arms Act, but all of them have been
acquitted from the said charge and no appeal has been preferred by the
(3.) Appellant in Criminal Appeal No. 209 of 2004, namely, Davendra
Singh has died. The appeal by him, thus, stands abated.;
