498a along with 406 and 420 was filed on me 8 months ago, charge sheet not yet filed. I am an NRI and planning to travel to India next month. Before going I would like to apply for AB, if I get AB without conditions then only will travel. I heard that if the police seize my passport it may take more than 2 months to get it back through high court and I'll lose my job here.
My lawyer is saying I am not even eligible for applying for AB from outside India and AB will always be granted with conditions (due to my NRI status surrendering passport is a must).
Is it possible to get the AB without conditions, so that I can come back in a month (due to my job). Can I convince the judge that I’ll cooperate with the investigation and will be available whenever they require me?
Please advise me on what needs to be done based on my situation.
I really appreciate your help!!
