Anticipatory Bail Pleas Are Not Money Recovery Proceedings: SC

Trending News

The pleas seeking pre-arrest bail are not money recovery proceedings and imposing the condition on the accused of paying interim compensation to the victim for such a relief is unjustified, the Supreme Court has said.

The top court made the observations while hearing the anticipatory bail pleas of an estranged husband and his family members in a matrimonial dispute.

A bench comprising Justices Dinesh Maheshwari and Bela M Trivedi modified the order of the Jharkhand High Court by which it had granted anticipatory bail to three people on furnishing bonds of Rs 25,000 each besides depositing a sum of Rs 7.5 lakh as ad-interim compensation to the woman who had filed the matrimonial case.

We are clearly of the view that in essence, the petitions seeking relief of pre-arrest bail are not money recovery proceedings and, ordinarily, there is no justification for adopting such a course that for the purpose of being given the concession of pre-arrest bail, the person concerned apprehending arrest has to make payment, it said in the order passed on September 29.
