SUPREME COURT: IT IS NOT MANDATORY FOR THE COURT TO GRANT BAIL U/S 88 CR.P.C JUST BECAUSE ACCUSED WAS NOT ARRESTED BY POLICE DURING INVESTIGATION

The two Judge Bench of Justices AK Sikri and Ashok Bhushan has held that it is not obligatory for a Court to release an accused by accepting the bond under Section 88 Cr.P.C. on the ground that he surrendered before the Court voluntarily and he was not arrested during investigation. The bench was hearing an appeal against the judgment and order of Allahabad High Court dismissing a Writ Petition filed by an accused challenging the Trial Court’s order denying bail to him. The Bench further added that Section 88 of the Cr.P.C. does not confer any right on any person, who is present in a Court.
