Dear Umapandya,

Anticipatory bail is given when the accused has a reasonalble apprehension of arrest. But when trial begins, there is hardly any difference between a bail & Anticipatory bail.

In the present case, when an order of the Hon'ble court is likely to arrive within one month(the accused who has already granted bail) cannot apply for the anticipatory bail.

We welcome further query from your side.

Sir as the trial is already commenced and the judgment is expected in one month or so the question of anticipatory bail doesnot arise as opined by my friend. If you are talking about in the even of court sentencing the Accused, in such event if the imprisonment is not more than three years you can file a petition under section 389 (3) of Cr.P.C before the trial court to suspend the sentence expressing your intention to prefer an appeal against the judgment of the trial court. Generally the sentence will be suspended upto 30 days.
