Courts should be more empathetic when liberty of women is in question: Punjab and Haryana High Court

The case was rooted in an agreement to sell certain property registered in the name of the woman’s (petitioner) husband.

After failing to execute the agreement, the husband had earlier been asked to refund the earnest money given by the intending buyer. To this end, he issued a cheque. However, it bounced, leading to the registration of a cheque dishonour case against the petitioner and her husband.

After the petitioner failed to appear for trial court proceedings in this case, she was eventually declared a proclaimed offender. She then filed a plea for pre-arrest bail before the trial court, which was rejected. Thereafter, she approached the High Court for relief.
