How to get bail in 420 criminal cases?
The process for getting bail in a criminal case involving Section 420 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), which pertains to cheating, is similar to that of any other criminal case in India.
The steps are as follows:
- File a bail application: The accused or their lawyer can file a bail application in the court where the case is registered.
- Hearings: The court will hold bail hearings, during which the prosecution and defense present their arguments for and against granting bail.
- Bail Order: Based on the arguments presented, the court will decide whether to grant bail and under what conditions. The court may also impose certain restrictions, such as surrendering of passport, and restrictions on travel.
It is important to note that the grant of bail is not automatic in criminal cases and the court will consider various factors such as the nature and severity of the crime, the evidence against the accused, the accused’s criminal history, and other circumstances before granting bail.
It is advisable to consult a criminal defense lawyer who has experience in handling such cases, as they can assist in the bail application process and represent the accused in court.
