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.”
