However, considering the fact that the trial Judge has awarded life sentence for an offence under Section302, in view of Section 31 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973, we make it clear that all the sentences imposed under the IPC, the Gangsters Act and the Arms Act are to run concurrently.

7. While confirming the conviction, we clarify that all the sentences are to run concurrently. To this extent, the judgment of the trial Court as affirmed by the High Court is modified.

8. The appeals are disposed of accordingly.
