Dear querist,

You have to file bail petition and if court reject bail then you may approach high court and file bail petition.

Hon'ble apex Court sue-moto had taken cognizance of the limitation in all cases pending before either of the courts in india and had given a blank order to exempt limitation till lockdown goes on so the benefit shall also go to the police authorities for non-preparing the charge-sheet within this period wherein the police is engaged in maintaining law and order situation. You shall not get the benefit of section 167 (3) Cr. PC to which you want to take at this stage wherein the challan has not been submitte within a statutory period of 180 days.
