SDM court issues a notice u/s 113 CrPC based on police report that peace may be disturbed hence asking to submit bond for six months or one year of Rs.10,000 and surety of same amount. One person named in the notice is not present in the city/jurisdiction since several months and other is a senior citizen.
Is the notice applicable to such persons, and what are they each supposed to do?
Is submitting bond tantamount to admission of accusation? Anyway they are living peacefully, so is there any harm in submitting the bond with a submission denying any wrong-doing?
Not important but what is the basis of amount? Thanks in anticipation.
