Bail u/s 498A, Directions issued to lower courts, especially in family matters


Criminal P. C. (2 of 1974), S. 437 (2) —Penal Code (45 of 1860), S. 498-A – Bail – Directions to lower Courts – Law regarding bail discussed – Directions issued regarding it issued to lower courts – Directions that in family matter If any family member is put behind the bars chances of a settlement may diminish. Hence in cases of 498A, unless the allegations are so gross that there would be, with absolute certainty, no chance of a settlement, whenever an Accused appears or moves for Anticipatory Bail and offers to settle the dispute he should be granted bail/provisional bail. Request to Law Commission to suggest suitable amendment in Section 437 (2) giving Magistrate wider discretion in cases instituted under S. 498A.
