Risk associated with surety


Dear experts ,

My friend's wife has filed a false dowry case 498 against him. To get anticipatory bail , he needs a surety person and he is asking me to help.

I want to know what risk is associated with if I stands as surety person for him .
How often do I need to visit the court if I give surety to him ? .

Thanks

Whether you have any control over the accused to be produced before the Court, as and when directed in case the bail is granted? If you can produce, there is no risk and you should stand surety for him/her, otherwise just think twice before making any comitment.

Consult with the lawyer engaged by your "friend" .

in case your friend violate bail then being surety you shall be liable to the tune of bail amount. As such no other risk.

If he regularly appears tocourt without absent nothing happens if he abscond u have to produce him before court if I fails the bail property is forfeited.

He is your friend, and the only surety binds his presence/attendance  during court proceedings and to safeguard that he will not escape from his residence without address.  This is the least you can do for your friend.

Just in case your friend does not appear in court and warrant gets issued again, you will be in trouble.  If he runs away, they will catch hold of you, and put you in jail instead of him, plus your money will be gone, you will have to find surety to secure bail if you go inside. This has cunningly been not explained by any of the above so think and proceed. Above all dont contact the friends lawyer at all in this case, he will make you go to jail in all probability and would want to get more business from you, by getting you inside. Be careful.

1. You have informed that he is your friend and he is the innocent and false case was filed on him.  The escaping from such custody in 498 cases is very rare as he must be having some standard business or secured employment and his parents or siblings was also facing the same.  It depends on your understanding your friendship whether he can involve you in such dire consequences.  A friend in need is a good friend indeed.  It is your discretion and explain the facts to your family members and take their advice more than anybody else.  If all friends escape with certain assumptions during dire needs, there is no value for such friendship.
