Bail is sought by an accused during the course of trial/investigation. after the trial, on pronouncement of judgment the accused is acquitted or convicted. On conviction his status is that of a convict. A convict cannot ask for bail. At the stage of appeal, legally and technically speaking the bail is "suspension of sentence". The order of suspension of sentence will only prevail till the appeal is finally decided. If the appellant is acquitted by the HC then well and good or else he could be directed to undergo the remaining sentence (if sentence is not altered by the HC).
