advocate Mr.D.R.Bhatt appearing for the opponent has relied on the
decision of the Apex Court rendered in the case of P.K.Ramachandran
v. State of Kerala & Anr. AIR 1998 SC 2276.
gone through the judgment, we are of the view that in light of the
supporting affidavit filed by the applicant side, it cannot be said
that the cause of delay is not reasonably explained. The judgment,
therefore, cannot be of any help to the opponent. The delay caused in
filing the appeal, therefore, deserves to be condoned. Accordingly,
this application is allowed. Delay is condoned. Rule is made
absolute. No costs.
