  A person who has the reason to believe that he may be arrested on the accusation that he've committed a non-bailable offence,  he can apply in the sessions court for the grant of anticipatory bail.  When a reasonable apprehension of arrest exists,  eg. FIR is registered,  one should apply for AB. The court grants  AB when it is satisfied that the applicant / accused will not flee away and shall comply with the conditions laid down and shall cooperate with the police with the investigation.

Dear RRRR , In addition to earlier Advocate , The Session court may grant Anticipatory Bail in 498 A case - Generally it is not granted to husband , other family members of the husband can get AB , if they are not living with the couple  or they have no connection with the demanded articles etc. Generally dowry is not the main reason for 498A cases . Other reasons are responsible for498 A cases . Disputes between MIL , SIL , the lady want to live seperate from her in laws . If you have any evidence regarding this that dispute between husband wife was not the dowry then you can easily get AB . Generally after FIR , Police start investigation , collect evidence from complainant and only after that police go for arrest and at this time you have to approach the concerning Court for AB . Best of luck . Anuz Doda Advocate
