||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
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.
