Anticipatory Bail Lawyers in Mumbai

On many occasions there are times there are some issues where you receive a call from the Police officer asking you to  come to the Police Station because a case has been registered against you. Once you go there, you are arrested immediately with no recourse available. In such a case, if you contact Advocate Saif Mobhani, he will help you procure an Anticipatory Bail and you can go to Police Station without tension.

Under Section 438 of the Criminal Procedure Code there is a provision for a person to seek ‘Anticipatory Bail’. This means that an individual can seek or request to get bail in anticipation or in expectation of being named or accused of having committed a non-bailable offence.
Anticipatory bail is meant to be a safeguard for a person who has false accusation or charges made against him/her, most commonly due to professional or personal enmity, as it ensures the release of the falsely accused person even before he/she is arrested.

To get anticipatory bail the person seeking it, must approach the Court of Sessions or the High Court and citing section 438 of the Criminal Procedure Code as well as giving proper reason, apply for it. If the court, based on a number of conditions and the nature of the case, sees merit in the petition the bail is granted. Hence if and when the person is arrested, he/she will be immediately released on the basis of the anticipatory bail.
Conditions that are taken into consideration by the court when granting anticipatory bail include, but are not limited to:
  • The person will make him/herself available for interrogation by the police as and when required by them
  • The individual shall not directly or indirectly  make any threat, promise or offer any bribe to any person who is connected to the case or knows        facts about the case, so as to keep them quiet or to get them to change their report of facts to the court or the police  
  •  An assurance that the person shall not leave India without prior permission from the court .
