Supreme Court slaps ₹10k fine on AoR for filing petition with factually incorrect grounds

The matter before the Court concerned a bail plea by a man accused of rioting and an attempt to murder.

The Patna High Court had denied earlier denied the accused-appellant bail, leading to an appeal before the Supreme Court.

The top court had granted the appellant interim bail on January 5, which it made absolute in its March 1 order.

The Court reasoned that there was no need to take the accused into custody since the chargesheet had been filed and since the accused was reported to be appearing as required before the trial court.

“In the event, the liberty granted is misused by the appellant, it will be open for the State as well as the first informant to apply for cancellation of bail,” the bench clarified.
