Anticipatory bail application

is it mandatory that any ABA must explicitly state "apprehension of arrest" in order to be valid / admitted?

Yes you have to show court that you have apprehension of arrest.

thank you for your immediate response. my question was does the application necessarily have to state " I am apprehending arrest .... " or is it enough to state "an application u/s 438CrPC...?

Thank you

To know some more details about anticipatory bail law and to read two constitutional bench judgements, please see the write up on the topic at
