The Allahabad High Court had recently given a few rules and guidelines for cases where anticipatory bail can be allowed even after the submission of the charge sheet.
On June 5, 2021, The Allahabad High Court came down heavily on a petitioner for documenting anticipatory bail applications straightforwardly in the High Court, expressing that it was necessary to mention special circumstances for applying to the High Court.
Justice Rohit Ranjan Agarwal passed this order while hearing a Criminal Miscellaneous Anticipatory Bail Application under Section 438 documented by Bhopal and two others.
The Anticipatory Bail Application was moved by the candidates straightforwardly under the steady gaze of the Court looking for anticipatory bail for a situation recorded at Police Station Sahibabad in District Ghaziabad of Uttar Pradesh.
The court observed that there must be compelling or special circumstances entitling a party to directly approach the High Court for grant of anticipatory bail
After examining the whole record, the Court tracked down that in the expectant bail application, the candidate has not referenced any convincing or uncommon situation to move toward the Court straightforwardly without the avenue as available before the Court of Sessions being exhausted.
