ANTICIPATORY BAIL, BLESS OR CURSE?

Normally, our law gives two kind of bails to accused to come out from conviction. There are Ordinary bail and Anticipatory bail. In first, anticipatory bail was made infavour of innocents who accused on political game, want to be does’t convicted can be appeal this anticipatory bail.

Anticipatory bail is gives you bail before your conviction even though FIR and Chargesheet were filed against you. On one side, this bail plays as a saviour for innocents who prey on someone’s misuse of law. But, on flip side our so called politicians and corruptionists evade our prestigious law by using this anticipatory bail since this bail came into effect.

However, a heat is going on now about ‘Prevention of attrocities against SC/ST act,1989’ which protects vulnerable section of our society gave some ray of hope to them till previous week. Our supreme court said previous week (March,2018) a ‘preliminary enquiry’ must be conducted before file a FIR on the ground ‘Prevention of attrocities against SC/ST act,1989’ and that enquiry should be conducted by minimum Deputy superintendent of police level within a week. It’s prevent misuses of the law. But, political parties raise concern about ‘Low conviction rate‘ of 23% on the ground of these attrocities against SC/ST act on 2016.

However, we should consider may be the weaken charge sheet, lack of evidence while scrutiny, Fabricated victims also plays to the low conviction rate.

Now, the concern is any law should’t be amend in favour any political games. Our law makers are resemblers of our society. They should be on the side of common man of society. The achievement of our post Independence is our constitution. We have to keep it’s holy status infavour of vulnerable society.
