Hello Sir, 

In my opinion, it is at the discretionary power of the court.

Mandatory bail if the chargesheet is not submitted and the accused is in custody last 90 days. 


Warm Regards

Dear experts please refer 167(2) Crpc. If the charge sheet is not filed within 60 days in summons cases and 90 days in warrant cases from the date of arrest of the accused then the accused shall be released on bail. This is statutory Bail and it is not discretionary power of the magistrate. The magistrate is bound to release the person on bail when the accused files the petetion u/s 167(2) Crpc provided that the sureities for the bail are furnished.
