Topic: Anticipatory Bail

Topic Description:

Earlier this week, the Supreme Court delivered a significant verdict, ruling that no time limit can be set while granting anticipatory bail. It also referred to the freedom movement when people were jailed for protesting against the British rule While lamenting that arbitrary arrests continue to be a pervasive phenomenon.The Top Court asserted that the discretionary power of courts to grant anticipatory bail can't be curtailed and can continue till the end of a trial.
