CfP: Modern College of Law’s Conference on Anticipatory Bail in U.P & Uttarakhand [March 10, 2018]: Submit by Feb 20

By: [email protected] | February 13, 2018

Modern College of Law, Mohan Nagar, Ghaziabad is organizing a National Conference on “Need to Restore the Anticipatory Bail in U.P & Uttarakhand: Where Jail, not Bail is a Rule” on March 10, 2018.

About National Conference:

“Bail is money or some form of property that is deposited or pledged to a court, in order to secure the release from jail of a suspect who has been arrested, with the understanding that the suspect will return for their trial and required court appearances.

Cr.P.C 1973 provides is two kind of bails: Regular bail & Anticipatory bail. Anticipatory bail is a direction to release a person on bail, issued even before the person is arrested.

Chapter 33 of the Cr.P.C 1973 is based on the principle of “Bail is a right & Jail is an exception” but actually it is not follows in U.P. & Uttarakhand as far as anticipatory bail is concerned.

As Section-438 of Cr.P.C. 1973, which lays down the provision of anticipatory bail, has been omitted for the purpose of U.P. by a State Amendment, vide Section 9 of the U.P. Act No. 16 of 1976 with effect from 28-11-1975, which was also applies to Uttarakhand, since in 1975, Uttarakhand was also the part of U.P.

Thousands of people in both states have suffered because of the non-availability of anticipatory bail. In the case of registration of a criminal case with non-bailable sections of the IPC, a person has only one option to save himself from arrest move the High Court at once.

While a resident of UP has to rush to Allahabad High Court or the Lucknow Bench of the court, a person from Uttarakhand has to move Nainital High Court to get a stay on arrest under section 482 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973.

A majority of people in both the states neither have the resources, nor the right contacts to get such relief. Those who can afford it have to travel long distances and spend a lot of money in the process. This also increases the load on High Courts of the two states. A contributing factor to the overcrowding of jails could also be the non-availability of anticipatory bail in UP and Uttarakhand.

As in our opinion all other states of the country have provision of the anticipatory bail and Uttar Pradesh & Uttarakhand lacks the above said provision.

In this regard we would like to say that all laws made in country should be practiced with equality along the Indian territory and the provision of anticipatory bail being available to the people of states like Gujrat, Maharashtra, Bihar etc. and not available to the people of Uttar Pradesh & Uttarakhand is direct violation of the fundamental rights enshrined in the constitution of India and many of the cases in recent 42 years showcase the need to restore the provision of the anticipatory bail in the states of Uttar Pradesh & Uttarakhand.
