SC: Court Has Inherent Power To Grant Interim Bail

I will have the judgment up as soon as I find it.  In the meantime, here is the excerpt from the Hindu:

“Quoting an earlier judgment, the Bench said: “We are of the opinion that in the power to grant bail, there is inherent power in the court concerned to grant interim bail to a person pending final disposal of the application. Of course, it is the discretion of the court concerned to grant interim bail or not, but the power is certainly there.”

In the instant case, Sukhwant Singh and others challenged the order of a single judge of the Punjab and Haryana High Court dismissing their application for anticipatory bail.

The Bench said: “We are not inclined to interfere with the impugned order. If the petitioners surrender before the court concerned and make a prayer for interim bail, pending disposal of the bail application, the same shall be considered and decided the same day.”

Here is the link to the article from The Hindu

Some Interesting Stats On Arrests Of Women

In 1930, the British govt arrested 17,000 women for their involvement in the Dandi Yatra (Salt March). During 1937 to 1947 (10 Years), they arrested 5,000 women involved in the freedom struggle. From 2004 to 2006, the govt of India arrested 90,000 women of all ages under 498A. On the average, 27,000 women per year are being arrested under this flawed law. These are stats from the NCRB.

The family of the writer was tortured by the Indian Police in an attempt to extort over a $100,000 by holding them in custody for over a week. The police, in cahoots with the magistrate and the PP, did this due to the ridiculous allegations made in a 498A case by his embittered ex-wife. She filed the case years after he and his family had last seen her. Thousands of 498A cases are filed each year in India by women seeking to wreak vengeance on their husbands and in-laws. Enormous sums are extorted from intimidated families implicated in these cases by corrupt Indian police officers and elements of the Indian judiciary. The author and his family haven't bribed any public official nor have they given in to the extortion. This blog aims to raise awareness of due process in India.
