We have got bail in 2014 itself. Are there any chances of arrest if we appear in court on the given date.
Request to please guide on how can i proceed.
The bail is granted and so no arrest will be done now. The criminal complaint based on FIR u/s 498A IPC is independent matter and it has to be defended by you in the court proceedings initiated by the Magistrate in the matter where you need to appear with your advocate on the dated fixed. You can even try for quashing of FIR and criminal proceedings from the High Court on the ground of delay in filling chargesheet by the police and falsehood of the criminal complaint that was based on similar facts and circumstances which got decided in the Domestic Violence case filled against you.The same you can use in the Magistrate court at the time of Charge stage which will be fixed by the Magistrate after you make your first appearence in the court. The Magistrate may consider the decision of Domestic Violence case as that was based on similar facts and circumstances.
