Uttarakhand High court recommends restoration of Anticipatory Bail in the State
Uttarakhand High court recommends restoration of Anticipatory Bail in the State while observing that even if FIR is false and frivolous, a person has to go to jail, be present before a magistrate and has to obtain bail which is a process that takes at least a week. The really astonishing part is that the provision of Anticipatory Bail was omitted in UP by the then Government during the period of emergency and the trend has been followed by both UP and it's off-shoot state Uttarakhand till date which is completely against the interest of equity, justice and good faith.
Both State Governments' must follow the directions and have a provision for anticipatory bail immediately.
