Whatever Bail Or Anticipatory Bail Is…Mil Toh Jayegi Na?


“Nahi Didi. Thorda tricky hai. Sunno…” Bail is the sum of money sentenced to post before a trial is eventually released from prison. It is not satisfactory and not acceptable. It should not be seen as a penalty. Its purpose is to ensure that the accused appear for prosecution and any pre-trial trials they have to attend.

A) Bail by Police

A policeman can issue Bail:

  • when the arrest was made without a warrant, or
  • when the arrest was carried in search of an arrest warrant.
