present appeal is directed against the judgement and order of the Delhi High
Court in connection with Criminal Appeal No.823 of 2001, arising out of the
Sessions Case 11/99.

the discretion which has been vested in the Court under Section 427 Cr.P.C. to
direct the sentence to run concurrently, if found fit, we modify the order
passed by the High Court in Criminal Appeal No.823 of 2001 and direct that all
the sentences in both the appeals shall run concurrently.
