Hi Prathap ,

Try the following way :
1. 
HttpResponse res = new HttpResponse();
Blob beforeBlob = res.getBodyAsBlob();

// Insert it in Attachment or in Document
Attachment objAttachmnt = new Attachment(parentId ='Parent ID', name= 'Shipment.pdf', body = beforeBlob);
  insert objAttachmnt;

or 
2. 
Attachment objAttachmnt = new Attachment(parentId = sObjectToBind.Id, name= 'Contract.pdf', body = EncodingUtil.base64Decode(strContractBodyStream));
             insert objAttachmnt;

Regards ,

Ajay
