Station bail abolished

lawUnion Law Department has amended CRPC 41A and cancelled the police station bail in order to check corruption in the police department. From now onwards bails will be granted by the courts only and a gazette notification was also issued in this regard. Earlier, police station could grant bail with a possibility of accused facing a jail sentence upto seven years. There were serious allegations that police stations were looting the victims under the pretext of giving bail. However, a section argued that courts have to be approached for bail by the accused in each and every case and courts may not have time to deal with small cases. But as per the new rule the SHO will have to file the case and produce the accused in the court.
