Bail application of accused can not be rejected on the ground that complainant may cause hurt to accused if released on bail

The contention that if released on bail the accused persons may be assaulted or any other criminal offence may be committed against their person by the complain-ant party is no reason for curtailing the liberty of the accused persons. It is the duty of the State to protect the life and property of its citizens. No law authorizes the detention in custody of a person whose life is in danger. The contention, therefore, is simply unsustainable.
