Sub-section (1) of Section 436 Cr.P.C. lays down as under:


“(1) When any person other than a person accused of a non-bailable offence is arrested or detained without warrant by an officer in charge of a police station, or appears or is brought before a Court, and is prepared at any time while in the custody of such officer or at any stage of the proceeding before such Court to give bail, such person shall be released on bail:…”



Therefore, where the offence is bailable, Section 436 Cr.P.C. gives a right to be released on bail. Therefore, the order of the Magistrate appears to be clearly wrong and needs to be challenged immediately before the higher courts.
