Respected sir, I have been convicted in sec 138 case and penalized with double the cheque amount and one year simple imprisonment. I have filed an appeal against judgement in session court who has ordered me to deposit 20% of penalty amount for the appeal to be heard. I am unable to arrange it. Hence, the session court has cancelled my Bail and issued NBW. I am left with no means to arrange the required funds. Am I left with any legal option to have my appeal heard or should I surrender and go to jail. My appeal has enough merit for acquittal, so says my learned counsel. I was denied opportunity to present my defense evidence by the trial court on ground of being not present for a month during which it closed the opportunity for me to lead my evidence, and order of conviction was passed.
