When shall an appeal lie to the Supreme Court in criminal cases without a certificate of a High Court?

An appeal lies to the Supreme Court without the certificate of the high court if the High Court: —- (a) has an appeal reversed an order of acquittal of an accused person and sentenced him to death; (b) has withdrawn for trial before itself any case from any court subordinate to it authority and has in such trial convicted the accused person and sentenced him to death. But if the High Court has reversed the order of conviction and has ordered the acquittal of an accused, no appeal would lie to the Supreme Court.
