Bail by magistrate when accused has been given police-bail

This query is : Resolved 

25 January 2021

In a matter of 354 IPC, the accused was arrested by SHO/IO and released on Police-Bail. Now charge-sheet will be submitted in court in next week, and accused is directed by SHO/IO to appear in court at the time of filing of charge-sheet by him.

My query is weather I should apply for anticipatory bail of my client to prevent the apprehension of sending him in Jail by the Magistrate or I should direct apply for his bail before the Court of the Magistrate at the time of his appearance with SHO/IO in the Court at the time of filing of the charge-sheet.

Weather the Magistrate would grant him bail without sending him in Jail?

Please guide with citations.

As per my opinion file anticipatory bail as you have an apprehension of the arrest.

When the Police had granted you the Bail and you have already obtained Anticipatory Bail also Only your Presence in the Concerned Court on Hearing Dates would be the Legal Mandatory. Only if you absent your self the Bail would be Cancelled other wise Nothing to Worry. Better have Your Advocate with you when you present your self in the Concerned Court. and Present your self Promptly on Hearing Dates and Dont Miss it.
